MSHA to release Upper Big Branch report Dec. 6

The Labor Department announced earlier today that its Mine Safety and Health Administration would be releasing the report of its investigation into the Upper Big Branch Mine Disaster on Dec. 6.

MSHA has scheduled a media briefing for 3 p.m. at the National Mine Health and Safety Academy outside of Beckley, W.Va.

It’s certainly an interesting date, being the 104th anniversary of Monongah, the worst mining disaster in U.S. history.
