Sunshine Act Meeting, 4338-4340 [2016-01515]

Download as PDF 4338 Federal Register / Vol. 81, No. 16 / Tuesday, January 26, 2016 / Notices (1) Blasting for this project will utilize MS delays. FKCI’s past experience using MS delays in similar environments has been successful. The Nonel MS caps and detonation cord significantly reduces the amount of cutoffs and misfires when blasting in a ‘‘shaft bottom’’ environment. FKCI has successfully used this method in areas of methane without incident. (2) Included in this petition are blast pattern drawings indicating MS delay times and drilling depth, manufacturer data sheets for blasting materials, and a ventilation plan showing the route of blasting smoke out of the mine. (3) FKCI believes that the intent of 30 CFR 57.22606(a) and (c) will be achieved along with the other safety concerns contained in this petition. The petitioner asserts that application of the existing standard will result in a diminution of safety to the miners and that the proposed alternative method will at all times guarantee no less than the same measure of protection afforded by the existing standard. Sheila McConnell, Acting Director, Office of Standards, Regulations, and Variances.
