Coal operator Alpha Natural Resources plans to sell 23 mine properties in five states as part of its Chapter 11 bankruptcy case.

Bristol, Virginia-based Alpha says in a notice filed this week in bankruptcy court that Jan. 20 is the deadline to submit qualified bids or to file any objections to the sale. The filing expands a sale list of 16 properties submitted in October.

The latest notice lists 15 properties in West Virginia, four in Kentucky, one in Tennessee, one in Virginia, and one in Illinois. Another property, the Twin Star Surface Mine, is listed in both West Virginia and Virginia. Fourteen properties are active mining operations while the others are closed or in the process of being closed.

The Bristol Herald Courier first reported the filing.
