Wyoming may see 8 years without major coal lease sale
The last federal coal tract sold in Wyoming was in 2012, and the next sale of a major coal tract might not occur until 2020, due to the Department of the Interior’s indefinite moratorium on the federal coal leasing program.
Although Wyoming mines have many years’ worth of coal under lease, some worry that delaying the lease process, which already takes up to seven years, may complicate operations.
