most likely a piss test, but if they suspect anything it probably end up with a blood test.

Paramont Coal is owned by Alpha Natural Resources, which is the second largest coal producer in the USA. As Barbara stated, underground coal mining is a dangerous industry and requires alertness and awareness at all times. With their status, I think blood test because a pre-employment test is just not to test for drugs. A breathing test (to check for black lung) an X-ray of the chest, hearing test and any other test the company wants on record if hired. Paramont doesn't want to be responsible later for a person with black lung or loss of hearing from previous employment as a coal miner. You don't need to take drugs mining, driving, trucking or any other occupation that requires a brain...the rest of us don't want to work or be on the highway with you stoned. Got it?

Coal use is declining about 10% per decade becasue private industry is switching to chaper & cleaner natural gas, wind, solar, etc. So..in a couple more decades you might need to find something else to "support."
