Jeremy Auville

Bolter Operator

Job: Bolter Operator
Shift: Night

Following in the footsteps of his grandfather who took him underground for the first time when he was 12, Jeremy has close to a decade of mining under his belt. A car accident cost him a college basketball scholarship and he had to move back home and take a job in the mines. Jeremy was seriously injured in a rock fall that left him covered for more than 30 minutes underground. He was out of work for more than a month and was afraid to go back into “the hole,” but for the sake of his two daughters, faced his fear and now mining at Cobalt Coal.
