No they didn't. They laid off a few. Not sure of the number, but my nephew told me this evening it wasn't many. They should be calling them back in a few weeks. Guess your bubble got burst, huh?

It has nothing to do with "damn dirty coal operators" and all to do with demand. You have no demand for a product, or one of your orders for your product cuts back temporarily, you cut back. Any business does it.

This has nothing to do of what your saying. This has to do with Low Met Coal, There is no demand for Low met coal. Frasure creek shut down becasue there met coal is low and it's nothing to do with the epa or killing animals so get your story right before you post stuff on here. There will be more mines to be shutting down just wait and see.

and another thing nothing to do with the EPA?! Your right. What I heard bad money management was the death of frasure creek. Repo'd equipment, not being able to push the product and bad management had more to do with this than simply not producing met coal. They have been in trouble for over a year. For god sakes they brought idiots from ky in to help try and restructure. They laid all these guys off about six months ago brought ky head hunters in to straighten stuff out. Little did they know they were dumber than dirt.

well, it now looks like a dirty old coal camp around here and smells like it too so I guess they can close up shop and move on. Sorry, but yes, this is the way the mines have always been, my husband was a miner and everytime you turned around it was either a strike or a layoff - feast then famine.... before Frasuer Creek came around I was pretty happy and proud of the home we had - after Frasure Creek... everything is dirty and nasty looking, have had to wait 20-30 minutes more than once to across the track to where I live after working all day and just wanting to get home, and I don't care what they say - having issues with my house from some of their blasts. I hate that these people are out of work BUT.... that's the mines for ya.

My husband worked there. They shut down everything but the reclaim plant. We have never put faith in the coal company. We knew it was just a matter of time before it was shut down. And even though we were waiting for it we weren't prepared to be without income and 4 kids at home.

I hate that all these families are now an income short of paying their bills. Regardless of how one feels about the Mining Industry, it was an income to many families. I don't like war, but I wouldn't talk crap about service men/women. Someone has to fight for us. Just like a coal miners mine coal for usage by all that dislike mining, but it is how someone feeds their family. At any means there is always someone running off at the mouth. If it isn't you or yours why worry about it. You don't like mining, they lost their jobs, I would assume you would be happy. But still, on topix criticizing people. SMH. For the families, I am so sorry that you have to go through this. I hope something comes available for you guys.
