Federal inspectors have yet to get underground at Massey Energy's Upper Big Branch Mine, but they've already hit the operation with another nearly two dozen citations -- all in the last two weeks.

U.S. Mine Safety and Health Administration inspectors cited Massey's Performance Coal Co. subsidiary for 23 different violations in a "spot inspection" that began May 14 and remains ongoing, according to the latest entries in MSHA's online computer database.
