D&C Mining Must Pay $1.7 Million in Fines

In a ruling against D&C Mining Corp. of Harlan County, Kentucky, a court ruled that it must pay the $1.7 million in fines it has been deemed to owe, after the company refused to pay after 10 inspections since 2010.

From 2006 to February 2012, the Mine Safety and Health Administration found 1,244 violations by D&C Mining Corp.

Along with paying its fines, the court ruled the Kentucky mining company must also post a bond to guarantee it will comply with federal mine safety laws in the future.

Also per the court ruling the company isn't allowed to move any of its property from the mining site; whether to sell it or transfer it somewhere else.

  1. You can draw the plans, if you find something, but you can't have the house built. Only a "sealed" set of blueprints is legal. Draw up a floor plan, which you can do without any software, and take it to an architect. He/she has to draw the actual prints.
