CASPER, Wyo. (AP) — The third largest coal producer in Wyoming says it has launched a "strategic alternatives" review that includes considering options like selling the company.
The Casper Star-Tribune reports Cloud Peak Energy employs about 850 miners at the Cordero Rojo and Antelope mines in Campbell County in northeast Wyoming.
CEO Colin Marshal says in a statement that it's continuing to adapt to industry changes and "to position our company for future growth opportunities."
