Maltby pit to be shut?
« on: October 08, 2012, 07:34:37 PM »
I heard on Radio Sheff this afternoon that Maltby colliery may be shut or mothballed by its owners, Hargreaves. Some 550 miners jobs are threatened. Apparently it's hit serious geological problems and despite turning a profit over the last 3 years it may be loss making this year.

I'll post more if I hear more.
