MSHA and Murray Energy Reach Settlement Over 1,753 Violations

Murray will pay $3.3 million in penalties, the agency announced

An administrative law judge has approved a settlement between Murray Energy and MSHA, according to a news release. The settlement resolves 1,753 safety violations in five West Virginia mines that were previously owned by CONSOL Energy Inc.

Ohio-based Murray Energy purchased the mines in December 2013; it will pay $3.3 million for the violations issued to the previous owner.

"This global settlement resolves MSHA violations issued prior to the Murray Energy purchase and operation of the mines and brings a close to all related, outstanding litigation," said Joseph A. Main, assistant secretary of labor for mine safety and health. "We believe this will allow Murray to focus its time and effort on current and future safety, health, and compliance issues."
