A coal strip mine mere miles from Bryce Canyon National Park

The Alton Coal Mine stands in direct contrast to nearby Bryce Canyon National Park—a dirty gash compared to the vibrant rock wonderland. This 600-acre strip mine, located about 12 miles from the park, wants to expand their operation by an additional 3,500 acres and 25 more years. The Bureau of Land Management has not yet issued the permit, but is analyzing the supplemental Environmental Impact Statement.
