Westmoreland Mining Holdings LLC and its wholly owned subsidiary Prairie Mines & Royalty ULC announced that it will be suspending operations at its Coal Valley Mine due to the significant constraints and challenges imposed by the COVID-19 pandemic. Based on the latest assessment of the continuing and ongoing impacts of this situation, the management team ultimately concluded that there was no other option than to place the Mine into a state of care and maintenance. All the equipment and infrastructure on site, including the processing plant, will be maintained to preserve a state of operational readiness

Westmoreland’s management team is currently working with all stakeholders on a phased reduction of production operations at the mine site, with the transition to full care and maintenance activities expected to occur within the next quarter.
