JRL Energy, Inc. is expanding its underground mining operations in Harlan County, Kentucky (USA). JRL commenced mining at the Magnum No. 1 mine in June.
“As our company continues to evolve, we will increase our reliance in our underground mining operations to meet the demand for our coal. We believe that our underground mining offers a consistent and cost-effective method of extracting coal," said JRL's Chief Executive Officer Tim Lusby.
This location is expected to reach full production by August 2019 and will employ approximately 35 highly skilled underground miners and support staff. These positions are all newly created jobs in Harlan County.
"This is another example of our long-term commitment to the community and coal industry," said Lusby.
