Skyline mine was honored for excellence in environmental care related to its new Winter Quarters ventilation facility. The mine voluntarily reduced the proposed construction site footprint by 40% to help preserve and protect Winter Quarters Creek. The ventilation facility will support the mine’s underground progression north.

“Skyline employees have an impressive track record of world-class expertise and stewardship,” said Gene DiClaudio, president of Arch Western Bituminous Group. “That record has earned Skyline a total of seven Earth Day Awards since 2000.”

Arch Coal’s Canyon Fuel is Utah’s largest coal producer. Skyline mine is located near Scofield, Utah, and employs a workforce of approximately 250. In 2011, Skyline maintained a perfect environmental compliance rate while producing nearly 3 million tons of low-sulfur coal.
