Report: More than 50 coal miners laid off in Kentucky

More than 50 coal miners at JRL Coal Inc. in Harlan County, Ky. were laid off, a Kentucky television station reported Aug. 12.

Miners were handed letters informing them that they no longer had jobs at the company earlier this week, reported WYMT-TV.

Harlan County is also the site of a recent protest in which unemployed miners from Blackjewel LLC who were laid off last month blocked a train car filled with coal after the company filed for a bankruptcy reorganization but subsequently saw its funding fall through.

JRL Coal acquired Harlan County coal assets from Alpha Natural Resources Inc. and Alpha Natural Resources Holdings Inc in early 2017.
