WV Coal Mine Owned By KY Company

Louisville, KY – That West Virginia coal mine where 13 miners were trapped and 12 eventually died is owned by a Kentucky coal producer that has a dozen surface and deep mines in eastern Kentucky.
International Coal Group reported earnings of $8.65 million for the three months that ended September 30th and $28.6 million for the first nine months of 2005.
International Coal Group is moving to Charleston, WV and won't be a publicly owned Kentucky company for much longer.
