The project, which includes the erection of a building at Beaumont Circle to accommodate its growing staff numbers, will allow 65 jobs to be retained and another 25 jobs to be created.

The Alliance Coal headquarters houses operations management, land management, legal, worker’s compensation and engineering and permitting offices as well as government affairs, information technology and accounting services.

Land costs for the project are $1.13 million, according to data from the state’s Economic Development Finance Authority.

The EDFA gave preliminary approval for up to $400,000 in tax incentives through the Kentucky Business Investment program.

Overall investments are projected to be $8.3 million for land, building, equipment and start-up costs.

Alliance operates 11 underground mine complexes including Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, West Virginia and Maryland.

One of its most recent is the Tunnel Ridge longwall operation outside of Wheeling, West Virginia.
