Chuitna residents petition against coal mine plan

Posted: Friday, February 05, 2010

ANCHORAGE - A group opposing a proposed coal mine on the west side of Cook Inlet delivered a petition to Gov. Sean Parnell.

The Anchorage Daily News reports members of the Chuitna Citizens Coalition met Wednesday with the governor to deliver the petition with 1,500 names.

They say the surface mine proposed by PacRim Coal about 45 miles west of Anchorage threatens salmon habitat in the Chuitna River.

Coal mine developers hope to export 300 million metric tons of coal to Asia over 25 years.
