    Patriot Coal’s loss widens on weak demand, mine closure

    May 8, 2012

    After the closure of the Big Mountain mining complex in West Virginia, announcing the closure of its Freedom Mine and racking $61 million in expenses and restructuring charges, Patriot Coal Corp. saw its first-quarter losses grow as coal demand continues to decline in the U.S. The company lost $75.3 million or 82 cents a share in the quarter.

    A year ago, its loss was $15.9 million, or 17 cents a share. The company has responded by idling or closing mines while laying off 1,000 people since the start of 2012.

    Patriot recorded $17.5 million in asset retirement expenses related to the closure of the Big Mountain mining complex in Boone County, W.V.
    The company also said it was restating financial results from the past two years following a Securities and Exchange Commission review of its accounting for water treatment facilities at two mining complexes.
