What type of drug testing is used? I've been clean for 45 days and am afraid of a hair test. I go to get my certification at the beginning of September and was curious what to expect.

My mine does hair and urine test. I had to do both when I got hired and have had urine tests every 30-90 days and hair tests every 6 months. And the hair test can go back as far as the mine is wanting to pay for the test, I'm thinking ours goes back 3 months because they asked for all medications we have taken in the past 3 months. Good luck! And stay clean!

I'm not sure about that, but patriot is closed now. They shut down about 2 months ago.

Most mines in this area are owens bt peabody patriot is from another branch of peabody so is grand eagle and various others just another way for them to shuffle money around thats why they can file bankrupcy and still operate becaus befor they file they alredy have other credit lines and bank accounts set up

If you would have read, I have been clean for 51 days now. So who's the dumbass? A statistic for being stroked off by another "straight" guy? Blow me you illiterate jackass

Why do they do a urine and hair test and why they give them every 30 to 90 days
