Who should clean up a coal giant's old mines? 16.4.2016 Salt Lake Tribune
The following editorial appears on Bloomberg View: The bankruptcy of Peabody Energy Corp., the largest U.S. coal producer, is the most vivid illustration yet of the market’s deep and welcome shift away from coal. It could also be calamitous for the environment: If Peabody goes out of business, who will clean up the pollution it has left behind? Under federal law, companies must pay for the reclamation of the land they have contaminated though mining. The usual way to do this would be to require...

Land mines of the sea: Cleaning lost fishing gear 15.4.2016 Salt Lake Tribune
Waretown, N.J. • They are the land mines of the sea, killing long after being forgotten. Abandoned or lost fishing gear, including traps, crab pots and nets, litter the ocean floor in coastal areas around the world. Many continue to attract, entrap and kill fish and other marine life in what’s called “ghost fishing.” Groups, governments and companies around the world are engaged in efforts to retrieve and recycle as much of the abandoned gear as they can get their hands on. The goal is to protec... <iframe src="http://www.sltrib.com/csp/mediapool/sites/sltrib/pages/garss.csp" height="1" width="1" > </frame>

Park City group trying to preserve faces of mining history 9.4.2016 Salt Lake Tribune
Park City • Mining begat Park City, so local conservationists are teaming up to preserve that heritage by stabilizing seven time-worn mining structures along Park City Resort’s ski slopes. “These structures represent the industrial backbone of the mining industry … a business that fueled this beautiful town we have,” said Rory Murphy, one of three co-chairpersons of the newly formed Friends of Ski Mountain Mining History. A year in the making, the organization announced its intent Friday to rais... <iframe src="http://www.sltrib.com/csp/mediapool/sites/sltrib/pages/garss.csp" height="1" width="1" > </frame>

Small slides, mine-wall movement has Kennecott's high tech 'eyes' watching 8.4.2016 Salt Lake Tribune
Bingham Canyon Mine • Some of this massive mine’s steeply pitching, yellow-rock terraces have shown signs of potential movement lately, even releasing a few small slides. So Rio Tinto Kennecott took reporters Thursday to a point high on the western wall of the open pit copper mine to see examples of the array of high-tech gizmos employed to provide early detection of ground movement so small it’s not detectable by the human eye. “It’s all about trying to keep our guys safe,” said Joan Danninger,... <iframe src="http://www.sltrib.com/csp/mediapool/sites/sltrib/pages/garss.csp" height="1" width="1" > </frame>

Kennecott mine operating again after movement sensors went off 7.4.2016 Salt Lake Tribune
Kennecott’s Bingham Canyon Mine was operating normally again on Wednesday, following a Tuesday shut down in the lower part of the mine, which is located in the Oquirrh Mountains west of Salt Lake City. Sensors had picked up ground movement in the southwest corner of the open-pit mine Tuesday morning, said company spokesman Kyle Bennett, prompting a precautionary shut down in that area. “We saw dilation, an expansion within the wall, yesterday morning through our monitoring systems,” Bennett sai... <iframe src="http://www.sltrib.com/csp/mediapool/sites/sltrib/pages/garss.csp" height="1" width="1" > </frame>

Part of Kennecott mine evacuated after movement sensors go off 6.4.2016 Salt Lake Tribune

Op-ed: Federal reforms will upend Utah's effort to perpetuate coal 3.4.2016 Salt Lake Tribune
The need for the Obama Administration to reform the way our publicly owned coal is managed could not be more apparent or urgent than in Utah, where Gov. Gary Herbert’s collusion with the coal industry stands to cost taxpayers and the climate dearly. As recently reported, the governor has funneled public monies toward the development of a coal export terminal in California on behalf of Bowie Resource Partners, a Kentucky-based company and Utah’s largest coal producer. It’s a shameful use of taxp... <iframe src="http://www.sltrib.com/csp/mediapool/sites/sltrib/pages/garss.csp" height="1" width="1" > </frame>

Letter: Give up the extractive past in Utah 2.4.2016 Salt Lake Tribune
In retrospect, now that the dust has settled, I suspect that the Public Lands Initiative proposed by Reps. Rob Bishop and Jason Chaffetz was well intentioned from their point of view. The problem is that their standard of correctness was based on old notions that are no longer compatible with the future of Utah. The future economic success of Grand and other counties, gifted with incredible natural beauty, will not be based on drilling for oil, gas, open pit coal mines or any extraction industry... <iframe src="http://www.sltrib.com/csp/mediapool/sites/sltrib/pages/garss.csp" height="1" width="1" > </frame>
