Utah’s Copper King mines back in production, saving 100 jobs

Copper King Mining Corp., a Utah-based company that built and for a brief time operated a $60 million copper mill just outside of Milford in Beaver County, has emerged from Chapter 11 bankruptcy. The mine and mill now are being operated by new owners who have placed them back into production, saving about 100 jobs. Salt Lake Tribune

Note: The reopening of the mine accounts for a large portion of Beaver County’s enviable job growth (10 percent in first quarter 2013). Click here for more information about Beaver County’s economy.
