SDSMT receives federal grant to train miners

(AP) The South Dakota School of Mines and Technology has received more than $59,000 in federal funds for health and safety training of miners.
  
The U.S. Department of Labor says the school's grant is part of the more than $8.3 million the agency is allocating this year to provide federally mandated training to miners.
   
The agency says the money covers training and retraining of miners working at surface and underground coal, and metal and nonmetal mines, including miners engaged in shell dredging or employed at surface stone, sand and gravel mining operations.
  
States first received funding to provide this kind of training in 1971. Forty-seven states, including South Dakota, and the Navajo Nation are receiving grants for mandated training of miners during the fiscal year that ends September 30th.
