Administrators move in at mining firm

Have your say

A DONCASTER-based mining firm has gone into administration.

ATH Resources PLC, based at Sidings Court, Lakeside, is the parent company of the trading business which operates four open cast mine businesses in Ayrshire, Scotland.

Details of how many jobs in Doncaster could be affected were unavailable last night.

Will Wright, joint administrator for KPMG, said the four mines would continue to trade and operate as normal and were unaffected by the administration. The administrators are looking at restructuring options including selling the businesses.

He said: “Our appointment only affects the group’s parent company and the main trading businesses within the group are unaffected by our appointment. They continue to trade as normal under the control of their directors. We are now looking at all the options, including a sale of the business, working with the directors and the other key stakeholders to try and find a solution.”
