Thousands of miners are asking the same question. Unfortunately Obama's war on coal is hitting home with the WV mining community. My advice is to try a contract company such as Lightning, Oasis or Mountain Edge. They don't pay very well and their benefits aren't much but at least they will help you get your foot in the door somewhere. Good luck in your search!

Best of luck in your search, however I would offer the suggestion of turning this lack of available jobs in mines as an opportunity to diversify your work portfolio with relatable skills. It never hurts to expand your versatility, but it can hurt to only be employable in one field.

Also, WV is no longer the coal capital it once was. If your determined to stick with coal it might require you to move to where the work is. Right now your seeing more opportunities out west than in West Virginia. Wyoming, North Dakota, Colorado, etc. Unfortunately you have to go where the work is.

Again best of luck to you.

Several just got canned because they couldn't pass a drug test down at the mines in deep water near Montgomery. Can't think if the name of it though. You might get one of those positions if you can pass a drug test.

I know a LOT of miners would get canned if they actually did the drug testing like they should at all of the local mines!

This isn't true. A few months ago, a few were fired for failing their drug tests but they it was after that when the mine revamped their schedules and laid off more than 20 people due to production and sales. It's Maple Coal Company, Walter Energy. They are accepting applications and resumes but they aren't on a hiring spree right now.

I'm sorry, I mistyped. First, the word "they" shouldn't be after the word "but". Second, they laid off more than 50 people.
