Mining and Reclamation Cooperative Education Program. Progress Report.
Barnett, Carl D.
The exemplary project was the cooperative effort of two schools in the western Kentucky coal fields to field test a program in mining and reclamation technology. Covering the first year of the project, the report describes the problem and scope of the study, the objectives pursued, the methodology, and the results obtained. The goal of the project was to relieve the manpower shortage by training and retraining people in Region 2 to be safer coal miners or reclamation technolgists. Selection of students desiring work experience while enrolled in the program was made jointly by the schools and the mining companies. During the year the cooperative coordinator continued in recruitment, counseling, interviewing, evaluation, and securing co-op positions. Appended materials include news clippings, conference agendas, a report of a practicum in reclamation technology, a budget report, and other program-related materials. (NJ)
