The federal Mine Safety and Health Administration (MSHA) has been granted an injunction preventing the Buck Mountain Slope Mine in Lykens from operating until it installs a wireless tracking and communications system in the mine.
The system would help rescuers locate trapped miners in the event of a disaster. The devices are required under the Mine Improvement and New Emergency Response Act of 2006.
The injunction prevents the company from allowing anyone into the mine except those working on installing the tracking system. The mine can’t open until MSHA inspects the mine and ensures that the tracking system complies with the federal law.
