WV Coal Member Meeting 2024 1240x200 1 1


FOC Hosts Another Wheeling Jesuit Tour

The Friends of Coal and the West Virginia Coal Association played host to another group tour by Wheeling Jesuit University this past Tuesday. This time the students were from Nebraska and were interested in getting a complete picture of the practice of mining, its economic impact on the state and the role it can play in building a new future for the people of the coalfields region.
Several of the students said they believed they had a better understanding of the importance of the coal industry to the state and a better sense of the importance our industry places on its critical role in the state’s economy today and in the future.
