NIOSH Experimental Mine Proposal Draws Comment

Posted By Mark Ellis, Thursday, July 12, 2018

IMA-NA filed comments in response to a Notice of Intent published in the Federal Register by NIOSH announcing its intention to prepare an Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) for the proposed acquisition of a site in Mace, WV, for the construction of a new underground mine safety research facility.  A public meeting was held on June 26, 2018, to begin to establish the range of issues to be addressed during the preparation of the EIS.  IMA-NA’s principal comment was that NIOSH should not dismiss from consideration the alternative of continued use of the former Lake Lynn Experimental Mine (LLEM) in Fairchance, PA.  IMA-NA supported taking the former LLEM under the legal doctrine of eminent domain, letting the courts decide just compensation.  IMA-NA’s comments provide justification to support continued consideration of this alternative.

A copy of the IMA-NA comments, including attachments, is attached.
