There is a continuous changes in the Indian mining industry in terms of mechanization and manpower. The number of diesel powered equipments is increasing and the manpower is decreasing day by day. But, the Indian regulation related to ventilation, based mainly on manpower and production. The air quantity based on manpower and production is unable to meet ventilation requirement for dilution various contaminants particularly diesel particulate matter (DPM) in mechanized mines largely using diesel equipments. This paper examines the air quantity requirement of Narwapahar mine based on different regulations and international practices and studies the dilution behavior of dust, noxious gases and DPM. Ventsim Visual software has been used for the simulation of air quantity and contaminants
