A coal mine in Hopedale closed permanently last week, leaving around 100 area residents without jobs. Harrison County Commissioner Paul Coffland said that Hopedale Mining LLC closed its doors last week, less than two months after filing for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection. Rhino Resource Partners of Kentucky, the mine’s parent company, made its bankruptcy filing in late July.

Although the mine and 27 of its affiliates filed for bankruptcy protection a few weeks ago, county officials were surprised at the news of the closure.

The Hopedale coal mine was reopened in 2005 after Rhino Resource Partners invested in the facility. Prior to the investment it had been closed since 1987.
