Some great news for coal miners in our state: 200 ideled union workers are being called back to work after nearly a year off work.

Bluestone Resources announced Monday that it would “resume production at its Coal Mountain mine in Wyoming County and its Red Fox mine in McDowell County,” MetroNews reports.

The company was purchased earlier this year by Greenbrier owner (and recently announced candidate for governor) Jim Justice. He promised to reopen the mines when the purchase was made.
