Money Will Help Train Miners

By Alabama Public Radio

Washington, DC – Alabama will receive nearly 183 thousand dollars to offer mine safety and health training to miners. The U-S Labor Department awarded the grant, which is part of nearly eight million dollars awarded nationwide. The money will help provide training and retraining of miners who work at surface and underground coal and metal mines. Miners who work in shell dredging or are employed at surface stone-mining operations also will be eligible for training. Alabama currently has 50 active coal-mining operations.
