Patriot Coal Corp. Lays Off 60 Employees at the Wells Complex and 15 at the Corridor G Complex

Patriot Coal Corp. announced the laid off 60 employees at the Wells complex and 15 at the Corridor G complex, both in West Virginia, pursuant to the Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification Act, or WARN, notice issued in April 2014. Patriot gave 60-day notices of potential layoffs to 847 employees April 23. Patriot said at the time that mine management at both locations would be evaluating operations and staffing to assess their ability to produce coal at a cost below projected sales prices.

Shareholders Appeal Decision Clearing Patriot Coal Former Management

Plaintiffs in a failed lawsuit against Patriot Coal Corporation management have filed an appeal with the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 8th Circuit. The suit alleges improper accounting for environmental remediation obligations related to selenium cleanup. In a letter dated April 24, the court acknowledged receipt of a notice of appeal from the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Missouri, which dismissed the case March 18. The suit, consolidated with several suits filed on behalf of Patriot shareholders, alleges that the defendants, former Patriot CEO Richard Whiting and former CFO Mark Schroeder, made false and misleading statements concerning the court-ordered environmental remediation efforts. The case on appeal is Thomas Podraza versus Richard Whiting (14-1947).

Patriot Coal to Cut Production at 2 West Virginia Mines

Patriot Coal plans to cut production at two mining complexes in southern West Virginia and potentially lay off workers. The company announced that it has issued 60-day layoff notices to workers at its Wells mining complex near Wharton and its Corridor G complex near Danville. Patriot employs 450 workers at the Wells complex and 397 workers at the Corridor G complex. The company needs to align its production with expected sales. The company says pricing for both metallurgical and thermal coal is well below production costs at many mines in Central Appalachia.
