OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - The Oklahoma Department of Mines has been chosen to receive a nearly $108,000 grant from the U.S. Department of Labor’s Mining Safety and Health Administration.

The $107,800 grant was announced Thursday.

The money is to be used to provide federally required training to miners. The grants cover 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.

The grant is among more than $8.3 million in total grants being awarded for 47 states and the Navajo Nation.
