It also marks a new chapter for Wyoming’s coal industry, which has largely avoided the massive cutbacks seen in Appalachia and elsewhere.The layoffs are also notable as they come at what are generally reckoned to be the largest and most cost effective mines in the country. North Antelope Rochelle and Black Thunder generally mine around 100 million tons of coal annually.Full article: Mass layoffs announced at Black Thunder and North Antelope Rochelle ‘Mass Layoffs’ Today at Two Biggest Coal Mines in U.S.last_img read more
