MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (AP) - The federal Mine Safety and Health Administration has labeled two West Virginia coal mines and one in Kentucky as pattern violators, meaning they've repeatedly broken federal health and safety regulations.
 
One is Pocahontas Coal Co.'s Affinity Mine in Raleigh County, where two men died within two weeks of each other in February.
 
The others are Brody Mining's Brody Mine No. 1 in Boone County, W.Va., and Tram Energy's Mine No. 1 in Floyd County, Ky.
 
They're the first added to the list since MSHA began using new screening criteria in March.
 
MSHA director Joe Main said Thursday his staff is reviewing several other mines that could be added.
 
When a mine is put on the Pattern of Violations, or POV list, it is subject to a higher level of scrutiny.
