Exclusive Access to New South Heart (ND) Mine Application

Now available on Plains Justice’s CoalDiver site.

This is a proposal to strip mine over 7000 acres, about 13 miles from Theodore Roosevelt National Park. The product: low-grade lignite coal, also known as North Dakota mud, destined for on-site coal drying and gasification plants. The current application represents the third attempt by the prospective mine developers to submit an application that complies with the law. The only way to get a copy is to request one directly from the North Dakota Public Service Commission, which provides DVD copies of the extremely long document.

Plains Justice put the document online to make it more easily accessible to the affected residents of South Heart, who have been excluded from the siting process repeatedly.
