Hallador Energy’s Sunrise Coal to Lay Off 112 Workers

A western Indiana coal company announced Wednesday it will lay off dozens of employees this spring.

Sunrise Coal informed the state it plans to lay off 112 workers at its Indiana operations.

The WARN Notice says the layoffs will begin April 23 and will affect the four locations in Freelandville, Oaktown, and Prosperity.

Sunrise Coal calls itself Indiana’s second largest coal producer, mining more than six million tons of coal at its Oaktown complex each year.
