Company seeks coal permit
A Houston company has taken another step toward their goal of constructing a $1.5 billion power plant and surface coal mine on 4,600 acres near South Heart.
South Heart Coal LLC, which is owned by Great Northern Power Development, applied for a mining permit Monday.
North Dakota's Public Service Commission will review the application, said Jim Deutsch -- director of PSC's reclamation division.
It will take at least six months to process the application, he said.
