“Westmoreland takes reclamation seriously at all of its operations and is committed to the highest reclamation standards,” said Bob King, president and COO, Westmoreland. “We are proud to have been recognized for our stream reclamation efforts at the Jewett mine.”

On February 2, 2012, the Jewett mine also achieved an important milestone with regard to its continued commitment to environmental excellence and stewardship. February 2 marked three years without the Railroad Commission of Texas, the Office of Surface Mining or the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality issuing the mine a Notice of Violation.
