Don Blankenship, the former CEO of Massey energy, could do business in Kentucky. Blankenship was with Massey when an explosion in West Virginia killed 29 miners in April of 2010.

Public records show a company called McCoy Coal Group was incorporated in Kentucky last January. It is listed as being based in the town of Belfry, in Pike County. Blankenship is listed as the company's president. Paperwork obtained by the Associated Press shows the company has not asked for a mining permit.

Blankenship retired from Massey in December of 2010. The April 2010 explosion was the deadliest mining disaster in the United States in four decades. This week, Massey's new parent company, Alpha, agreed to pay a $210 million settlement with the families of the miners killed.
