The monthly inspections involved mines that garner increased attention and enforcement due to their poor compliance history or particular compliance concerns. Since April 2010, MSHA has conducted 863 impact inspections and issued 13,580 citations, 1,221 orders, and 55 safeguards. Impact inspections were conducted at mines in Arizona, Kentucky, Illinois, Maryland, Puerto Rico, Virginia, and West Virginia.
