On March 12, 2007, XMV, Inc filed a petition pursuant to 101(c) of the Federal Mine Safety and Health Act of 1977 (Mine Act), 30 U.S.C. § 811(c), and 30 C.F.R. § 44 et seq., for the modification of the application of 30 C.F.R. § 75.364(b)(4), a mandatory safety standard.
On July 30, 2007, the Coal Mine Safety and Health, Division of Safety received a letter from the petitioner requesting the petition be withdrawn. An adjacent mine has completed mining operations and the separator seals between the two mines are no longer required. As a result, the petition is no longer needed. Therefore, pursuant to the authority delegated by the Secretary of Labor to the Administrator for Coal Mine Safety and Health, XMV, Inc’s Petition for Modification of 30 C.F.R. § 75.364(b)(4) to its Mine No. 35 is hereby:
