RICHMOND, Va. (AP) â¿¿ James River Coal Co. says it's been given an imminent danger citation after a miner was caught with an open pack of cigarettes and a lighter at one of its mines in Kentucky. Richmond-based James River says in a Securities and Exchange Commission filing Wednesday that the federal Mine Safety and Health Administration issued the citation Dec. 10. The company did not identify the mine, other than to say it is operated by its Bledsoe Coal subsidiary. MSHA records say Bledsoe operates eight mines and processing plants in Leslie and Harlan counties in Kentucky. James River says it submitted a plan to MSHA on Tuesday to prevent people from bringing cigarettes and other smoking materials into its mines.
