    MSHA puts 13 mines on notice for potential pattern of violations

    Mines represent first group to be identified under agency’s new screening criteria
    November 19, 2010

    MSHA announced that it has advised 13 mines that they have been placed on a “Potential Patterns of Violation” list, the first set of mines notified that they might face increased “Patterns of Violation” (POV) enforcement since MSHA toughened its POV criteria. Of the mines, 11 of the 13 are coal mines, and of those the majority are in Central Appalachia.

    Four of the mines on the list had previously been notified that they were on the PPOV list: Straight Creek #1, Upper Big Branch, Eagle #1 and Ruby Energy.

    MSHA Press Release: 550 violations cited in latest ‘impact inspections’

    The Mining Safety and Health Administration (MSHA) announced that as a result of their “special impact” inspections, initiated in the wake of the Upper Big Branch Mine explosion, resulted in a total of 341 violations in their inspection of 15 coal mines. The rest of the violations occurred in 15 metal/non-metal mines.

    Mines were targeted based on their history of prior violations. Included were the Advantage Number 1 mine in Kentucky, which was issued 51 violations. Another was the Straight Creek #1 Mine (also in Kentucky), which was issued 39 violations. A later, regularly-scheduled inspection on October 14 found that many of the conditions had not changed, and the mine was closed until the problems were corrected.

    The full list of coal mines cited is
