Clean Power Plan carbon emission comments due Monday 1.12.2014 Steamboat Pilot
Monday is the deadline to submit comments to the Environmental Protection Agency concerning the proposed Clean Energy Plan that aims to reduce carbon emissions from coal-fired power plants. The next step is for the federal government to review submitted statements made during the past several months in order to make a final rule on the plan by June. Originally, the deadline was Oct. 15, but it was extended to Dec. 1 after the EPA received nearly 750,000 comments before the first deadline, according to the EPA. Northwest Colorado houses two coal-fired power plants, Craig Station in Moffat County and Hayden Station in Routt County. Moffat County has two surface coal mines, Colowyo and Trapper Mine, that feed coal to Craig Station. Twentymile is a below-ground coal mine in Routt County that mines coal for Hayden Station. Both counties have expressed concerns that if the Clean Power Plan is too stringent, it could hurt the Yampa Valley economy. In June, President Barack Obama released the proposed plan to ...

Paul Bonnifield: Coal mine near its end 25.10.2014 Steamboat Pilot
Dear Editor, I usually don’t respond to a letter to the editor that comments on a letter I’ve written. I think I need to comment on Mr. Kevin Copeland’s letter “Fact 1st on Coal.” The hard truth is that the Twenty Mile coal mine is running out of coal to mine and several miners and railroaders better be looking at their future. Critical facts to be considered Twenty Mile Mine’s operation in the Wadge Seam is nearing the end. The Wolf Creek Seam (150 feet beneath the Wadge) is lower in British Thermo Units (BTUs) and higher in ash than the Wadge coal. One of the critical advantages of the Wadge Seam is it high BTUs relative to Power River coal. The Wolf Creek Seam simply is not as good of a coal and doesn’t command the same market position. The economic cost of operating in the Wolf Creek coal will be considerably higher. Lifting millions of tons of coal an additional 150 feet is expensive. Having higher ash requires more expense and manpower in the wash plants to clean the coal. The two factors will add ...

Kevin Copeland: Facts 1st on coal 22.10.2014 Steamboat Pilot
A good historian first will research all available information, then cross reference the data in order to concur that factual events indeed took place. This information should not in any way be infused with personal views or beliefs in order to make a political statement that might be construed as actual recorded history. Mr. Bonnifield’s letter to the editor — “Coal mining dying off” in Saturday’s edition of the Steamboat Today — imbued fact, misinformation and his obvious personal political views, without showing an in-depth knowledge of modern mining or the business strategy behind its practice. True, Twentymile, started as a strip mine, owned by Bob Adams in the 1960s, and later by such corporations as Texaco, Amoco, Getty, Cyprus, R.A.G. and, presently, Peabody Energy. The Wadge Coal Seam, mined at Twentymile, naturally dipped deeper (a syncline) beneath the earth (overburden) than could be surfaced mined practically. They then adapted by following the seam underground as a room and pillar ...
