Three Mines Risk Closure if Company Cannot Secure Contract

RUPERT (WVVA) -- More than a hundred miners in Greenbrier County stand to lose work in January.

A spokesman for Greenbrier Minerals tells WVVA the company has yet to secure a contract for 2014.

In the event that the company cannot secure a buyer, executives are warning of the possible closure of Mountaineer No. 1, Moutaineer No. 3, and Midland No. 2 mines.

Officials said they are making every effort to reach an agreeement before the Dec 31st deadline.
