ArmstrongEnergy300CENTERTOWN, Ky. (10/28/15) — Armstrong Coal has issued notices to its Midway Mine employees warning of a possible shutdown of the mine.

Executive Vice President Kenny Allen confirmed the notices were sent out through Jerry Wright of WXMZ. Due to market conditions, unless Armstrong Coal were to secure additional sales, the Midway mine would close at the end of the year.

Midway Mine is a surface mine near Centertown. Armstrong Coal has produced and processed coal at Midway since 2009.

It is unknown how many workers this shut down could affect, but if the mine is closed on Dec. 31, workers would be employed no longer than Jan 15, according to the warn notice.
