Posted: Updated:
BELMONT COUNTY - A new mine training facility is coming to Belmont County.

Governor John Kasich and the Ohio General Assembly dedicated $2 million of state money to create the facility, which will include classrooms, a simulator, and an area for competitions.

To make the best possible use of the money, the Ohio Department of Natural Resources is seeking potential partners with available property. All proposals for possible locations are due July 15. You can find their website here.

The evaluation of possible locations will continue until September 15.
