Coalmont Energy employees and sub-contractors are celebrating tonight.
Since the beginning of September there has been a temporary operational curtailment at the coal mine which was expected to last between seven and ten days. The delay has dragged on two weeks longer than that, and this has been a stressful time for many. Today the mining inspector gave the verbal OK for operations to resume. A written document will follow.
Getting the inspector’s approval means that the plant can restart and the workers in the pit can get back to work too. Operations will likely be back on track sometime during this week. §
