County Times reported that the application by Celtic Energy, to extend mining up to December 31, 2021 and restoration work to be finished by June 2023, has been approved by Powys County Council’s planning committee. Mining at Nant Helen was supposed to stop on December 31, 2018. The site had been mothballed by Celtic Energy in October 2016 due to a loss in demand for its coal.

Another mine of Celtic Energy’s, East Pit near Brynamman is coming to the end of it’s productive life. Celtic Energy want to re-start the mining operation at Nant Helen to fulfil its existing contracts which is for around 400,000 tonnes of coal a year. It is estimated that Nant Helen has around 800,000 tonnes of coal left. This will be used at Port Talbot’s Tata steel works and contracts it has at Immingham in England, and Belgium.
