Harlan County Judge-Executive Dan Mosley has unveiled further details on the company looking to hire Blackjewel miners.

In a Facebook post Thursday, Mosley said the company FLUOR and United Infrastructure Group will hold a job fair in Harlan on Thursday, August 1 from 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.

The company is looking to hire 25 to 35 positions to work on a highway expansion project in Asheville, North Carolina which is approximately 2.5 hours from Harlan.

This expansion is a four-year project. Workers would be supplied a place to stay during the week while working on the project but are still able to live in Harlan County.
