Important Starting Information

* We are updating all information provided by the Mine Data Retrieval System (MDRS) daily. This occurs from 5:00 a.m. to 5:45 a.m. Eastern time. During this period you may notice some data will not be available.
Also, the data used for the MDRS is based on data gathered from various MSHA systems. As there may be a lag time in data being entered into those systems, there will also be a lag in the reflection of that data on the MDRS.
MSHA's Mine Data Retrieval System (MDRS) is based on the history of each mine. Many mines have been owned by more than one operator during their histories. We are providing you with the "Operator History" for each of the mine searches you do. (See More...)
