Authorities haven't released the man's name and say an autopsy is planned for Thursday.
It's the second fatal accident in seven months at the complex. A 36-year-old miner was crushed to death last November when a piece of coal rolled on top of him.
Wednesday's accident is being investigated by the Mine Safety and Health Administration.
