The Justice Department said the settlement is the largest of its kind. In addition to payments to families, Alpha will pay nearly $35 million in fines and $48 million to fund mine safety research, and pledged to spend $80 million on safety improvements at the company's underground mines as part of its settlement with the Justice Department.
