State mine inspections were a joke... Just a bunch of useless government jobs... When the guardshack used to call the mine office where I worked, to say an inspector was on the property, the only thing I asked was "state or federal"... If they said state no further action was required...


The fish rots from the head down. Giving plenty of notice to get rid of it before it stinks up the entire shop.

I agree, state never cost any money for violations, so the company never minded them. Feds on the other hand fined you for not wiping good enough. Also, I believe ole Cate has come back from the past as a new name.

I'll tell you what's not a joke. The fact that the Huff Creek Lone Mountain mines has had 4 in less than 14 years. That's an average of one man miner's death every 42 months at that mines.

Meant to say '4 fatalities in less than 14 years'. No wonder I have trouble with proof reading before posting. Just thinking about this topic upsets me.

U.S. Mine Safety and Health Administration faults the company for failing to put adequate procedures in place for propping up suspended equipment that killed a Webster County Kentucky miner last year.
