The Wishbone Hill Coal Strip Mine is in the final stages of permitting, but it’s not too late to let our government officials know that the Mat Su Valley is no place for a coal strip mine. 

The Alaska Department of Natural Resources is now accepting comments on the Wishbone Hill Coal Strip Mine permit that would allow this mine to operate in close proximity to thousands of families, reduce property values, and drastically impact air and water quality in the Valley.

Facts:

  • Toxic coal dust, constant blasting, and traffic jams caused by Wishbone Hill will destroy property values across the Mat-Su.  Major banks are already denying home loans based on the possibility of Wishbone Hill.
  • Thousands of families live within 5 miles of the proposed Wishbone Hill Coal Strip Mine.
  • Mining for coal at Wishbone Hill won’t lower your electricity or energy costs – Usibelli plans to sell all of the coal to Asian superpowers like China, Japan, and Korea.
  • Both Palmer and Wasilla are downwind from the proposed mine, which is located in one of the windiest places in Alaska.
  • Up to 100 double-bedded coal trucks would rumble down the Glenn Highway every day to deliver coal to a rail facility in Palmer or ships at Port MacKenzie.
