Ohio Company Will Not Reopen Crandal Canyon Mine

Monday was the five year anniversary of the Crandall Canyon Mine collapse in Utah that killed six people. Ed Havas, an attorney for the familes of the victims, says his clients believe the collapse could have been avoided. The mine's owner, Cleveland-based Murray Energy, was fined half-a-million dollars for the collapse. The company says it has no plans to reopen the mine. A Bureau of Land Management official had said the company wanted to reopen the mine at a future, unspecified date.
