The truth has finally came out it came down from corporate at the Patriot office that due to high operations costs and performance that the Kanawha Eagle Eagle 1 or any of the coalburg mines will not be reopened in the next calendar year. It has been a successful operation for years and thank you for all of your hard work and dedication.

Why would workers be informed on topix?! My husband works there and hasn't heard anything like this. Heck, there was just a meeting a couple weeks ago changing our insurance so that we now have a deductible. We were told they did that so they didnt have to cut pay. It just seems that if this were true the men would be told directly. Not on some trashy gossip site.

My husband works there as well.. He said that they were talking about getting a bunch of their equipment repaired today, so why do that if they are gonna shut down? And I totally agree, why would they be notified on a website like this instead of in person. Bob has no problems with holding meetings, anyone that knows him knows that..

I know right? I mean we just went to a meeting a few weeks ago! My husband works at Coalburg 1 and they just added the 2nd section about a month or so ago. I really don't think Bob or Skeets would try to notify people by way of topix. I'll be picking Leonard up at 11 though, so I'll be sure to ask him. But this sounds like something done to panic people to me.

I ask mine about it last night. He said that they just had buyers in there yesterday and they were suppose to have buyers in there monday but not on evenin shift. This is just a bunch of BS. We were told that if the people that were there to buy yesterday do buy their coal that they'd be good to go.

I am just telling you I have sit in on alot of meetings and Newtown Lost has lost nearly 3 million dollars already this year. There is no way that they will reopen the place. It was told to us and I am referring to salary personell that we were to keep it quiet, but I do have friends that work there and that is just not right. They have terminated alot of people and have not replaced half of them, please believe me if not just sit back and watch but I will say again you need to find other options.

If you're salary personnel then who are you? So we do know what you're telling us is legitimate? If you're not salary personnel then there is only a few people you could be.

I worked for skeets & bob for over 12 years and it was great it was like being around friends or family. but when patriot took over it all changed for the worse. so I left. then skeets gave me a job at coal river. hopefuly skeets & bob will start another mine and get all us old KE boys back together cause ill tell u being from KE around here is like being abad stepchild.
