Conemaugh Mine was a proposed U.S. surface mine in Conemaugh Township, Pennsylvania. The mine, which would have been operated by PBS Coals, was cancelled in August 2012 when the company failed to procure a zoning variance.[1]

Background

In 2011, the Dovey family sought to lease approximately 50 acres of their farm for a strip mining project. They intended to lease to PBS Coals—a Russian company that, in 2014, was acquired by the Canadian coal company, Corsa Coal Corporation.[2][1]

The family requested a zoning variance in order to proceed with the lease, however, thanks to stiff local opposition, the zoning board declined their request in August 2012. The project would have produced an estimated 240,000 short tons of coal and would have lasted an estimated two years.[1]
