The U.S. Labor Department’s Mine Safety and Health Administration recently published the results of its investigation into a fatal October accident at an underground anthracite mine operated by R&D Coal Co., Inc. in Schuylkill County.

Due to improper blasting procedures, a 43-year-old miner was blown 800 feet from the site where he was detonating explosives. The investigation cited R&D Coal for at least six violations that contributed directly to the miner’s death.
