  • More Massey workers face license-forging allegations

    December 15, 2010

    In the wake of last week’s revelation that a mine foreman at Massey’s Upper Big Branch mine used a forged forman’s certification for 228 inspections, Ken Ward Jr. has uncovered a disturbing number of other instances of forged foreman card’s at Massey mines. Included in the list are:

    • Craig W. Belcher, who used a forged card for a week at the Spartan Mining facility before getting caught and fired by Massey
    • Scott E. Jeffrey, who used a forged electrician’s card to get a job at Massey’s Power Mountain Processing plant.
    • Neil A. Hasen, who used a forged card for five inspections at Big River Mining, and now faced federal charges.
    • Luke W. Pugh, who faces up to 180 years in jail for telling the operators of the Pleasant Hill Mine that he had a foreman’s certification, and then later repeating the lie to a federal investigator. He also accused of using that forged certification 541 times.
    • Chad J. Farrell, who faces up to 150 years in jail for conducting more than 500 inspections with a forged license at the Poplar Ridge Mine
