Justice-family owned company idles second mine

Another Bluestone mine was idled on Thursday.

A day after Pay Car Mine 57 was idled, WVVA News has learned another Justice-family owned mine will also be temporarily idled -- Pay Car 58. That mine employs 40 workers.

The Pay Car 58 mine is also located in McDowell County.

While a company spokesperson was not immediately available for comment, just a day earlier the spokesperson cited 'poor market conditions' as the reason for the closure of Pay Car 57.

With respect to Pay Car 57, the Bluestone spokesperson said the company hopes to bring workers back in the near future if conditions improve.
