Twentymile Mine asks to mine additional acres 4.3.2015 Steamboat Pilot
Routt County's Twentymile Coal Mine is asking permission from the federal government to mine coal from an additional 310 acres under ground. According to the Bureau of Land Management, Twentymile intends to remove 340,000 tons of coal from the area in a 1 1/2- to 2-year period. In 2014, the mine produced 6.66 million tons of coal, down 8 percent from 2013 when the mine produced 7.24 million tons. Charlene Murdock, a spokeswoman for Peabody Energy, Twentymile’s parent company, said the request is a minor amendment to the mine's existing operation. The additional acreage would allow Twentymile to extend mining in the Wadge coal seam and would enable the mine to add mining equipment in the Wolf Creek seam below.

"We're trying to get the public to give us an idea of what sort of impacts they see," BLM spokesman Chris Joyner said. The BLM ...

Quite naturally, residents of Steamboat take immense pride in that statistic and what it says about the community’s devotion to tradition and winter sports.  Some have even speculated that there is mineral magic in the local spring water that makes youngsters here ski faster. Walt Evans, a coach and director of the Steamboat Springs Winter Sports Club in the mid-1980s, who went on to a three-decade-long career with the United States Ski Association, says the magic can be found in the community’s relationship with the hill itself. Howelsen is easily accessible from schools, Evans said. It’s relative autonomy as a stand-alone ski training ...
