Massey is hiring.. And the mine in birch river is hiring red hats specifically I believe it's Brooks run.. If you have no luck there go to atlas belt if u have belt experience u may get underground work there

I do know what I'm talking about... I was sent a letter from this company, "Man" were not pathatic. Did you mean pathetic? Oh you must be from the uk I get it now. If they're not digging under Sophia why did they send out the letters, "Man" that knows everything?

Ok People I dont know about the Black Hat thing but I do know about Affinity..I worked there for 12 yrs back in the 70s and 80s..as for the top and bottom both are very good it is Hott but all the mines around here in the Poca seams are...I have talked to a few young guys who work in the mines now and they seem to have an idea that Affinity is a Slop-Hole...well there could very well be a lot of water due to it being idle for so long but like all mines it will dry out and if you live close think how much you will save in Gas...
Dont know this New Company but when Eastern-Peabody was in there it was a Great place to work..and had a really good Bath house...
So this old Retired Farts Advice if you can get a Job there go For It....And Always Remember to be CAREFUL in any Mines you Work in...the thing in any mines thats the Easiest to BREAK is YOU....Fart
