Coal news: North Dakota regulators approve coal mine permit

Associated Press

Regulators say the company's proposed Coyote Creek Mine near Beulah, in Mercer County, is the first major mine to be permitted in North Dakota since the late 1970s.

BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — The North Dakota Public Service Commission has approved a permit revision for a new coal mine in the west-central part of the state.

Regulators last year approved the permit for Coyote Creek Mining Co., a subsidiary of Dallas, Texas-based North American Coal Corp. The PSC on Wednesday amended the permit to add another 342 acres to for a coal haul road.

Regulators say the company's proposed Coyote Creek Mine near Beulah, in Mercer County, is the first major mine to be permitted in North Dakota since the late 1970s.

Coyote Creek Mining wants to begin delivering coal to the Coyote Power Station next spring. Regulators say the power plant would use about 2.5 million tons of coal from the mine each year.
