We hope to be part of a national movement to stop extreme energy extraction of all kinds. There are currently three communities in our valley that are threatened by coal mines that are in various stages of leasing and permitting, but there is currently no coal being extracted.

We appear to have just won a major victory against the mine that was closest to “development.” Usibelli Coal’s permit to mine at Wishbone Hill has been declared invalid by the federal Office of Surface Mining thanks to comments made at a public hearing by a Castle Mountain Coalition supporter.
