Company Description

Colowyo Mine is one of two fuel suppliers to Tri-State's Craig Station. The mining operation is located about 25 miles north of Meeker, Colo. approximately 25 miles from the power plant.

The mine was originally developed in 1978. Tri-State purchased the mine from Rio Tinto Energy in 2011.

Operating as one of the state's largest surface coal production operations, Colowyo Mine's 219 employees produce approximately 1.7 million tons of low sulfur, subbituminous coal annually from a 29,000-acre permitted site. Personnel at the mine use both draglines and truck and shovel operations for removing the overburden and extracting the coal.
The coal is extracted, crushed and transported to an on-site rail head, where it is shipped by train to Craig Station's load-out facilities. About five trains, pulling 50 or more 120-ton railcars, make weekly deliveries to the power plant. Currently, all of Colowyo Mine's coal is shipped exclusively to Craig Station, providing the plant approximately 60 percent of its total fuel resources.

Colowyo Mine facts:
     Purchased by Tri-State in 2011 (in operation since 1978)
     Approximately 219 employees
     Equipment fleet includes 12 240-ton haul trucks and 9 bulldozers
