On September 24, 1999, Energy West Mining Co., filed a petition pursuant to 101(c) of the Federal Mine Safety and Health Act of 1977 (Mine Act), 30 U.S.C. sec. 811(c), and 30 CFR 44 et seq., for the modification of the application of 30 CFR 75.350, to it's Trail Mountain Mine, located in Emery County, Utah.
