Violating Mines
(2007-06-15)
(wgvu) - An iron ore mine in Michigan's Upper
Peninsula is among a list of eight mining operations that could
face sanctions.
The federal Mine Safety and Health Administration says coal
operations at the Tilden iron ore mine in Marquette is among those
considered as a repeat violator of health and safety rules.
Mines in West Virginia, Kentucky and Alabama -- and a quarry in
California -- are also on the list.
Each operation will be monitored and has 90 days to show
significant improvement. If improvements aren't made, the M-S-H-A
says it can shut down the operations.
