BEULAH MINE, NORTH DAKOTA
Westmoreland Beulah Mining LLC operates a 9,000-acre surface mine complex located 75 miles northwest of Bismarck, North Dakota. Beulah’s 400,000 tons of annual production supplies the fuel requirements for the two-unit, 75-megawatt RM Heskett Station in Mandan, ND.
Beulah Mine employs advanced, award-winning reclamation and land-preservation techniques, in particular a mine plan that preserves wooded draw areas, naturally-occurring narrow valleys primarily vegetated with trees and shrubs that provide valuable wildlife habitat, livestock shelter, and naturally occurring landscape diversity.
Over many years of operation, Beulah has been recognized with numerous company, industry, federal and state awards for safety along with the North Dakota Public Service Commission’s Award for Excellence in Surface Coal Mining & Reclamation
