Title 30 CFR 57.3461 requires operators of underground metal and nonmetal mines to develop and implement a rock burst control plan within 90 days after a rock burst has been experienced. Plans are required to include: Mining and operating procedures designed to reduce the occurrence of rock bursts; monitoring procedures where detection methods are used; and other measures to minimize exposure of persons to areas prone to rock bursts.

    Section 101(a), 30 U.S.C. 811(a), allows MSHA to promulgate 
standards that would require operators to make and retain records from 
which MSHA would then be allowed to collect information. Section 
103(h), 30 U.S.C. 813(h), of the Federal Mine Safety and Health Act of 
1977 (Mine Act), 30 U.S.C. 801 et seq., authorizes MSHA to collect 
information necessary to carry out its duty in protecting the safety 
and health of miners.
    Title 30 CFR 57.3461 requires operators of underground metal and 
nonmetal mines to develop and implement a rock burst control plan 
within 90 days after a rock burst has been experienced. Plans are 
required to include: Mining and operating procedures designed to reduce 
the occurrence of rock bursts; monitoring procedures where detection 
methods are used; and other measures to minimize exposure of persons to 
areas prone to rock bursts. Plans are also required to be updated as 
conditions warrant and are to be made available to MSHA inspectors and 
to miners or their representatives. The standard does not require that 
all underground metal and nonmetal mines develop these preventative 
measures, but it does require that all mines with a rock burst history 
develop and implement a rock burst control plan.
    When rock bursts occur in an underground mine, they pose a serious 
threat to the safety of miners in the area affected by the burst. These 
bursts may reasonably be expected to result in the entrapment of 
miners, death, and serious physical harm. Recent mining technology has 
disclosed scientific methods of monitoring rock stresses which will
