HENDERSON, Ky. (AP) — A coal company is building a new facility in western Kentucky.

Riverview Coal LLC operates a massive underground coal mine in Union County. The new $35 million facility will be built in neighboring Henderson County, according to a media release from the Kentucky governor’s office.

The project will create 260 jobs. Work is expected to begin next year and will be finished in December 2024, according to the governor’s office.

The company said the new facility is necessary because of “growing demand.” The company produced more than 9 million tons of coal in 2021 at the Riverview Mine.

The coal company is a subsidiary of Tulsa, Oklahoma-based Alliance Coal.
