Background

Craney Mine is operated by Solar Sources inc, which was an independent family owned coal company until 2016, when White Stallion Energy purchased it.[2] When White Stallion went bankrupt in 2020, the Bowman family that started and managed Solar Sources Inc. up until that point lost control of the company.[3] During bankruptcy process, White Stallion halted operations in all its mines, [4] and the MSHA database indicates that the mine had 0 employees in 2021. [5] Nevertheless, its MSHA status remains as "active". The Mine had been operational at least since 1983.<ref name=MSHA>

In 2020, the mine produced 1 million tons and had 73 employees.<ref name=MSHA>
