"Unfortunately, weak market conditions have resulted in an over-supply of domestic coal, which necessitates that we reduce our production," said Larry D. Martin, Chief Financial Officer of Hallador Energy Company.

"The employees who are affected by this action are a part of the Sunrise family, and we regret the impact this will have on their families and the community.

As a result of today's announcement, Hallador will be shifting production to its lower cost operations at Oaktown, Indiana.

News 10 will have more on this story later online and on the air.
