Mining jobs to be lost with mine idling
Operations will be stopped at a Cumberland River mine in Letcher County, Kentucky.

The company says it made the decision after exhausting all other cost-cutting measures.
It cites difficult and persisting thermal coal market conditions. There is no word on when that mine will close.
