Hendricks Coal Expects Layoffs at Mingo Mines


  Hendricks Coal expects to lay off 90 workers at three mines and a coal preparation plant in Mingo County.

A warning notice filed with Workforce West Virginia shows that the layoffs are expected to occur Dec. 1 at the company’s No. 1, No. 5 and No. 6 underground mines and at the prep plant.

Online records show Charleston-based Hendricks Coal filed the notice of the layoffs, known as WARN, last week.
