Opponents seek hearings on coal mine in Illinois

FAIRMONT, Ill. (AP) — Opponents of a planned coal mine in eastern Illinois are beginning their push for public hearings now that the company has submitted a permit application.

Terre Haute, Indiana-based Sunrise Coal wants to set up a mining operation roughly between the small villages of Fairmont and Homer, about 15 miles southeast of Champaign.

The Illinois Department of Natural Resources says the company submitted a final permit application for formal review by the state on July 29.

Jonathan Ashbrook is a member of the activist group Stand Up to Coal. He said that public input will likely focus on concerns over mine discharge points leading to the Salt Fork River.

The newspaper reports that Sunrise officials did not return calls seeking comment.
