Arch Coal Suspends Otter Creek Mine Project

BOZEMAN, Mt. - Today, Arch Coal announced it is “suspending efforts to secure a mining permit for the Otter Creek coal reserves.” Earthjustice has worked with our Northern Cheyenne tribal partners and conservation groups to prevent development of the Otter Creek mine since Arch Coal secured leases for mining in 2010. Earthjustice sued to overturn the leases and advocated tirelessly for Montana Department of Environmental Quality scrutiny of the project.
