Panther Creek Mining LLC has issued Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification layoff notice to 65 coal miners for its operations at 800 Toms Fork Road and 100 Toms Fork Road in Eskdale on Cabin Creek in West Verginia. The layoffs are scheduled to take place in early March. Kanawha County Commission Mr Ben Salango said “Our coal miners have been the backbone of West Virginia for over a century, risking their lives every time they go to work. I am very concerned with the loss of coal mining jobs in our County and the State. We must find ways to create new jobs in our area to help support these families and grow our economy.”

Kanawha County Commission President Kent Carper said in “It is truly unfortunate that we continue to suffer critical job losses in the mining industry in Kanawha County and for that matter the State of West Virginia. The layoff of 65 individuals at Panther Creek will affect more than 100 family members in Kanawha County. I am saddened for these employees and their families.”
