Closing of Unit 1 to impact coal production at Trapper and Colowyo 8.9.2016 Steamboat Pilot
The closing of Craig Station’s Unit 1 by 2025 may also affect two Northwest Colorado coal mines. “Once Unit 1 is retired, Craig Station will burn less coal to produce electricity,” Tri-State Generation and Transmission Association spokesman Lee Boughey said. “As we go forward we will be evaluating the impacts that could have on the mines that supply the plant.” The 1,303-megawatt Craig Station, which is operated by Tri-State, receives all of its coal from two nearby mines just outside of Craig in Moffat County — Trapper Mine and Colowyo Mine. The two surface mining operations produce coal exclusively for Craig Station, and shutting down the 427-meggawatt Unit 1 will alter coal production at the mines, Boughey said. Trapper Mine Manager Jim Mattern said Trapper is contracted to provide coal to Craig Station through 2020, and it has additional reserves ready for development. “It’s going to be business as usual for us for the next few years, and we do have reserves that would take us beyond that date,” he ...

Letter: Put Facebook in Carbon County 6.9.2016 Salt Lake Tribune
I was thinking about Facebook coming to West Jordan. It sounds like it will cost way too much and use too much water. Why not put it over in Carbon County since the coal mines are being shut down and people need well-paying jobs to replace them. They’ve got 53 million dollars to get it started. Let’s invest it wisely, instead of sending it to California. Ronald Bond Salt Lake City <iframe src="http://www.sltrib.com/csp/mediapool/sites/sltrib/pages/garss.csp" height="1" width="1" > </frame>
