Massey Energy Company (MEE) is currently assembling mine rescue teams in order to be fully prepared and ready to enter the mine immediately upon official clearance from the appropriate authorities.
Massey Chairman and CEO Don Blankenship has been on site today and meeting with families all afternoon except for a short period when he was asked to meet with MSHA, following which he provided a brief update to Governor Manchin. He has now returned to meet with families and intends to do so into the evening.
