BlackJewel Mines Bidding Results Announced
Contura Energy has bid $33.75 million at an auction for the assets of three Blackjewel mines in Wyoming and West Virginia. The bidding results were announced Sunday and are subject to approval by a federal bankruptcy judge. Blackjewel filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection July 1. The results did not indicate whether any mines would reopen and enable hundreds of idled miners to return to work.
