Petitioner: American Mine Services, LLC, 11808 Highway 93, Boulder, CO 80303. Mine: Joliet Mine, MSHA ID No. 11– 03153, located in Will County, Illinois. Regulation Affected: 30 CFR 49.6(1)(a), Equipment and Maintenance Requirements. Modification Request: The petitioner requests a modification of the existing standard, 30 CFR 49.6(1)(a), as it relates to equipment and maintenance requirements. The request for modification applies to the application of the standard to allow American Mine Services, LLC (AMS) to continue to provide a rescue station at the mine with only six self-contained breathing apparatuses instead of the twelve prescribed in the standard and continue the contract with the Lafarge Mine Rescue Team that has twelve apparatuses. The petitioner states: (a) The primary mine rescue team consists of AMS, 150 Union members, and Bluff City personnel, and the Lafarge Aggregates Illinois, Inc. team serves as the backup. The mine currently has a mine rescue station with 6 readily available self-contained apparatuses. The onsite mine rescue station contains all other required equipment and meets all other requirements of 30 CFR 49.6. The Joliet mine has and will continue to maintain a written contract with Lafarge Aggregates Illinois to serve as the second rescue team for the mine. (b) Lafarge Aggregates Illinois has 12 readily available self-contained apparatuses at the mine rescue station where that rescue team is stationed. (c) The availability of 18 selfcontained breathing apparatuses with the onsite mine rescue team and station will at all times guarantee no less than the same measure of protection for miners afforded by the standard. It is due to these circumstances that AMS requests approval for modification to CFR 49.6(a)(1) and continue to operate in the same manner that has been present since the start of the contract with Bluff City in 2020.
