Wyoming Coal Mine

Wyoming Coal Mine
Proposed Wyoming coal mine subject of regulatory hearing
The Associated Press - May 22, 2017

CASPER, Wyo. - A state regulatory council is holding hearings this week on whether to approve what would be Wyoming's first major new coal mine in decades.

Lexington, Kentucky-based Ramaco wants to open the Brook Mine north of Sheridan in northern Wyoming.

But the proposed mine on the banks of the Tongue River is contested by a handful of local landowners and another coal company, Big Horn Coal, which operated in the region until the mid-1980s.

The Casper Star-Tribune reports that the Wyoming Environmental Quality Council has set aside the whole week for the hearing, which began Monday in Sheridan.
