Mine Officials Site Safety Concerns in Mine Disaster
Published on 07/23/2010 -
The mine explosion occurred in Montcoal, West Virginia, and resulted in 29 deaths. This tragedy is the worst mine disaster in 30 years.
Mine officials from the MSHA claim that mine operator Massey Energy Company put profits before safety, and that this lax approach to safety substantially contributed to the blast.
The disaster has resulted in multiple civil suits and investigations and a congressional probe in conjunction with the Mine Safety and Health Administration investigation. Criminal wrongdoing charges could very well be filed against the Massey Energy Company.
Massey is ardently contenting the findings of the MSHA and has launched an aggressive public relations campaign, maintaining that they were not at fault.
