The state Board of Coal Mine Health and Safety is scheduled to be briefed Tuesday on the electrocution of a miner at Massey Energy's Aracoma Alma No. 1 Mine and the death of a contractor working at International Coal Group's Sentinel Mine. Both accidents occurred in May.
Investigators have said they believe 24-year-old Nathan Dove cut a live electric cable while repairing a shuttle car at Aracoma. The Logan County mine was the scene of a conveyer-belt fire that killed two miners in January 2006.
The other accident involved 18-year-old Adam Lanham. He was run over by a piece of heavy equipment at the Sentinel mine in Barbour County.
