Written by broebling on July 25, 2019
It appears dawn may finally break over the long, dark night of anxiety and uncertainty for some 600 hundred furloughed miners here in Campbell County. Blackjewel, LLC has filed a series of motions in Fedral Bankruptcy Court in West Virgina, proposing the court approved it’s plan to sell it’s Western Assets, along with a mine in West Virginia to Contura Energy. An emergency hearing on those motions is scheduled for this afternoon at 12:30 Mountain Time.
