Montana Department of Environmental Quality has approved a 977-acre expansion of the state's largest coal mine Spring Creek Mine, located near the Wyoming border, extending the life of the mine by four years to 2031.

Officials said that the expansion includes about 72 million tons of coal and is expected to produce up to $59.5 million in taxes for the state, and employ up to 340 workers.

The decision also includes more than $105,000 for 615 acres of lost habitat for endangered sage grouse.
