Mining company wants to surface-mine at West Virginia cemetery site

The Patriot Mining Company wants to relocate a Methodist church cemetery in Monongalia County, West Virginia, moving 22 graves in order to surface-mine at the location. So far, only eight people have signed consent forms to move their ancestors' remains; a hearing is set for Feb. 18 in Monongalia County Circuit Court on the matter. We will try to stay tuned for future developments
