South Dakota casino closes at least temporarily in Deadwood

Posted: Updated:

DEADWOOD, S.D. (AP) - A Deadwood casino has been closed at least temporarily, leaving 52 people out of work and uncertain about their futures.

The Gold Dust closed at the end of its New Year's Eve celebration. A lawyer for the Gold Dust's owner says the casino is closed for renovations. The casino is owned by the Dunham Company, a Sioux Falls firm that deals with construction, real estate brokerage and property management.

Dunham's attorney, John Archer, says the company plans to reopen the casino in the future, but he does not know when that might happen. He says he also does not know whether former employees will be rehired after the renovations are complete.
