Coal company in bankruptcy court asks to sell Wyoming mine

CASPER, Wyo. (AP) — A Colorado-based coal company going through bankruptcy proceedings has asked for permission to sell its mine in southwestern Wyoming.

The Casper Star-Tribune reports a recent court filing shows Westmoreland Coal Co. requested to sell its Kemmerer mine by the end of February.

The company declared bankruptcy in October with more than $1.4 billion in debt amid declining demand for the fuel.
