A college educated engineer and army veteran, Tom has always wanted to be what he is now – an independent mine owner. Although Tom enjoys the independence of running the mine, he says the most worrisome part of the job is the responsibility for worker safety in such a dangerous industry. Tom’s had a rollercoaster career in which mining has made him a millionaire several times over and also left him bankrupt. The Cobalt Coal mine is Tom’s shot to go out on top.
