  • MSHA announces results of December 2010 impact and regularly scheduled inspections

    January 27, 2011

    MSHA has announced the results of its targeted inspections conducted in December 2010 in coal and other mines. Mines on the list had been targeted for heightened levels of scrutiny, and for the thirteen coal mines inspected, a total of 186 citations were issued of which 53% were S&S violations. However, unlike previous impact inspections, several mines (N&L Slope operate by Bear Gap Coal, and Road Fork #51 and Marsh Fork Mine both owned by Massey) actually came through the inspections with no violations. The rest of the mines faired far worse, averaging more than 18 violations each.
