I heared the exact same thing a few weeks ago. I can't believe sigmon actually sold his mines. Oh well.

I figured that would happen.Not to trash all the sigmon workers or anything because some of those guys work their asses off but their are some who didn't really wanna work,would not show up for work,call in or leave early and Mr Sigmon didn't care.A&G will care and not put up with it.I see alot of guys getting fired or quiting.I am only speaking of the strip mines part,I don't know anything about the underground part.I know their are some guys who work at Sigmon on the strip part that was fired from A&G.

A&G did not buy out Sigmon Coal. The company that bought A&G also bought Sigmon. They are the ones that own Bluestone and several other companies in Ky. They also have jobs in Tennessee and Va. I think the mans name is Jay Justice. Don't know for sure but was told the new name for the Sigmon part of their company would be called Virginia Fuels.

I just hope the changes are for the best, and I wish the guys best of luck and hope that this will bring more job opportunities for the men who deserve it. Who's your hubby out of curiosity? Mine worked for sigmon for 24 years.

who owned mountain resources? Was that the mines that laid off a bunch of men, and later down the line had to have a rescue sent in for underground miners? Maybe I'm thinking of a different miner company.

A & G Bought out Sigmon, as of right now they are keeping things the way they have been, with no changes as of yet. I am sure however that once they start doing drug testing on these men A LOT will be fired! There has been a few to quit already. I know this because I have a family member who bosses there, They had a meeting yesterday when they where informed of no changes being made right now.

Unless you know my hubby from A&G I doubt you know him.He only worked for A&G for years and then moved on to the company he is with.He hasn't worked any where else.

A&G is buying up alot of mines though,pretty soon they will all be owned by them and they will dominate the coal industry.

yes I know him, and you as well. and as for the mine business, I hope it gives these people that really deserve it the jobs. I hate that people that cannot give up their daily dose of "high" take the jobs from these people that have a family, children, and can actually PASS a test. Its a shame.

I guess they do.I don't know what name they go by now.I knew them by A&G when my husband ran equipment for them so that is what I continue to call them.I am sure they have a different name by now.

Work where too? and AllegraC when I said I know you and your husband it was a kindly way of saying "hey,how are ya", Not beginning of a war. I'm impressed you havent already figured out who I am that knows you and your husband so well.=) I have faith in ya, you will figure it out soon.

Whaaa, did your husband work at Mountain Resources, A&G, or at Sigmons?
