Yeah there are a bunch of us and a few ladies to.Right now we have 3 CM units running as well as the wall. The longwall is expected to hole out in the first half of December. One of the CM units is about finished with the set up room for the next panel.

I had read a bit on Bob Murray 3 or 4 years ago, well before Utah. I 'd love to spend a day with him, discussing his career in the coal business.

Bob Murray has an attitude that you will either love or hate.

We know Bob Murray- - - he & his son donated a mine locomotive to our group. The one thing I have to say is Bob he has worked very hard to be where he is at today & has opened up a lot of mines to give Americans jobs. He was a coal miner & his passion still remains in the mines.

Ryan was at the mine the other day. We are making the turn in for another longwall panel. I guess he had to come and see how things are going. HE was in my way,and all I could see was a light , and clothes with alot of stripes on them (company people). Well I politely told him to get the f*%^ outta my way!!!!! He then came up to me and introduced himself :D

Ryan was great to deal with for us. You need to sit down to meet those guys we have had great luck & conversations with the both of them.
