MSHA Final report issued for fatality on 3/18/2023

- "On March 18, 2023, a miner died when the mine roof collapsed during the installation of standing roof support (crib) as part of the longwall recovery cycle. The accident occurred in an area adjacent to a longwall shield.

Best Practices:

Follow the approved Roof Control Plan.

Design, install, and maintain roof support where miners work or travel.

Never travel or work under unsupported roof.

Conduct a visual examination of the roof, face, and ribs immediately before starting work in an area.

Be alert to changing roof conditions, especially during longwall recovery."
