    MSHA Releases Findings on Dotiki Mining Accident

    October 13, 2010

    MSHA has released its report into the deaths of coal miners Justin Travis and Michael Carter who were killed in a roof fall on April 28, 2010. Travis and Carter were operating a continuous mining machine when a section 76 by 19 foot of roof detached and crushed them. The cave-in was caused by hidden “slickenslides”, that “weakened the overlying rock beds and allowed the bolted roof to be pulled down where the miners were working,” the report concluded.

    As a result of the accident, MSHA issued two orders, including one for failing to adequately support the roof in the area of collapse. MSHA noted that the roof bolting had been done according to the mine’s approved plan of operation, but that the collapse by definition meant that the mining company had failed to support the root.
