09:09 EDTWLTWalter Energy to idle Canadian operations, temporarily lay off employees, staff
Walter Energy will begin idling its Canadian operations, including the Wolverine and Brazion coal mines in British Columbia, in April. The company will place its Wolverine mine on idle status effective immediately. Brazion will continue to operate the Brule mine but expects to idle the mine by July. The company will continue to operate its preparation plants at these mines to complete processing of coal that already has been mined and is in inventory. For 2013, coal production from Wolverine, which produces mid-volatile hard coking coal, was 1.6M metric tons, while the Brazion mines produced approximately 1.9M metric tons of low-vol PCI and 0.1M metric tons of hard coking coal. As of December 31, 2013, Walter Energy had approximately 1.1M metric tons of coal in inventory in Canada. Employment impacts include temporary layoffs of approximately 415 employees at the Wolverine mine, approximately 280 employees at Brazion, and other administrative support staff. A limited number of employees will remain at each site to operate the preparation plants and, once coal processing is complete, to perform ongoing equipment maintenance and provide ongoing security for the sites during the idle period.
