Peabody Energy said that it will permanently close a southern Illinois coal mine and a nearby coal-processing plant late this year. The planned closure of its Wildcat Hills Mine and the nearby Willow Lake Preparation Plant will affect about 225 workers. The mine and processing center at Arclar Complex in Saline County will cease production December 14 due to “uneconomic mining conditions.”

The Southern Illinoisan said that the closures and job losses are expected to be permanent. Peabody Energy says, however, that it will work with employees interested in seeking positions at the company’s other operations in the Midwest.
