West Virginia’s coal mining industry has taken a downturn. The coal industry and many hard working coal miners are being forced to adjust to this situation. A large number of West Virginia coal miners have found themselves looking to mining in other states, including Alabama, Arizona, Colorado, Illinois, Kentucky, Montana, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Virginia and Wyoming. While some of these coal miners can still mine coals, others may be asked to mine for other minerals and ores such as iron, copper, diamond, platinum, silver and gold. Additionally, many West Virginia companies have set up mining operations in other states.
