Hank Toler

Roof Bolter

Job: Roof Bolter
Shift: Night

Hank’s been mining since 2000. He’s a second-generation miner whose father retired after an injury in the hole. His father discouraged him from mining, but Hank says in West Virginia, you’re either a logger, miner or flipping burgers and says he wasn’t about to start flipping burgers. Hank says that coal mining is just something he loves, that it’s in his family’s blood – and deep in his blood.
