have successfully supported the roof in an area of a coal mine with similar
strata, opening dimensions and roof stresses; or
(b) Tests which show the materials to be effective
for supporting the roof in an area of the affected mine which has strata,
opening dimensions and roof stresses similar to those in the area where the
roof bolts are to be used; during the test process, access to the test area
shall be limited to persons necessary to conduct the test.
(3) A bearing plate shall be firmly installed with
each roof bolt.
