Thing Are Looking Up, Down There

Consol Energy has announced that its 400-employee Buchanan Mine in Buchanan County, W.Va., is likely to be back in production by the end of this month, AP reports.

The mine was sealed after a fire broke out on the longwall in mid-February. At the time, the company said a rock fall in the gob was the likely ignition source.
