Description

From introduction: "This bulletin aims to give the metal miner and the quarryman information similar to that given the coal miner in Bulletin 17. Inflammable gas or dust is seldom, if ever, found in quarries or metal mines, and the danger from using explosives there is less than in coal mines; but, as the figures show, the number of men killed and injured yearly in accidents caused by explosives proves the need of both miners and mine officials striving to see that none but proper explosives are used and these are used properly."
