Miners from mothballed Maltby Colliery have been finding new jobs with Cleveland Potash at Boulby, near Middlesbrough.

Cleveland Potash has recruited more than 50 miners from pits around the UK that have closed.

Most come from Maltby, with others coming from Hatfield colliery, near Doncaster, Daw Mill Colliery in the Midlands and Aberpergym drift mine in Wales.

Cleveland Potash’s general manager, Phil Baines, said: “Modern mining is a complex, expensive and difficult working environment, so we are delighted to welcome on board the newly recruited experienced men.

“It is especially gratifying that we can offer them jobs and a secure future at a time when other mines are laying off workers.”

The news comes shortly after CPL announced a major expansion and development plan for Boulby, which will secure its future for the next 40 years.
