its half true there are some potential investors,but not 20, coming to look at the mines and decide if they are willing to invest their money.but rumors fly around there everyday.but if they do sell out the mines has alot of contracts with power plants and steel companies.so even if someone buys them out they are looking to make money so i would venture to say they men would only leave if they don't like the changes if there would be any.

omg, you do not know what you are talking about, they ARE selling out, not looking for investors, i think they have mooched off the ones they have now too much, it will be for the best if a big compnay comes in here to run things like a coal compnay should be ran and not a scam.

I guess thats why they did a major layoff about 3 maybe 4 years ago. Then a minor layoffs after that bc they didnt have orders to fill. My husband works for Alpha now, and that company is as bad as Midland Trail. When my husband left Midland, he drove all the way to Route 3 even after Midland Trail called him back after the big lay off. I can't comment on safety and what nots, but I know "most" people were more satisfied with working with Massey vs. Midland Trail, but I think Alpha is equally hated.

I agree minerwv,i feed these miners everyday and i have heard from both mine's top bosses that they are possibly gonna be shutting them both plum down if they can't get any sales for the coal because their millions in debt.as far as Turley goes,he has ruined any possibility of anyone ever trusting him. he's one of the reasons the coal is so hard to sell.
