Green Valley Mine
The Green Valley Mine "includes two underground room and pillar mines and a preparation plant. The Green Valley preparation plant receives coal from the mines via trucks. The rail loading facility services customers on the CSX rail system with unit train shipments of up to 75 railcars."
In February 2001, the West Virginia Department of Environmental Protection cited Massey subsidiary Green Valley Coal for "a substantial history of violations" at its coal waste disposal site in Greenbrier County, West Virginia, suspending its permit for 30 days.
