10,000 acres in the heart of the Matanuska Valley

This summer, Riversdale Resources wants to take the first steps towards building a coal mine in the heart of the Mat Su.

This development will completely destroy the quality of life and community that lives there.  Just like the Wishbone Hill Coal Mine, all of the coal would be exported overseas, and the impacts and burden of the development will spread across our valley.

In addition to the constant trucking and heavy equipment used, coal development could also threaten our water and destroy our access to the abundant subsistence resources and trails that the Mat Su has to offer.

The good news is that Riversdale Resources has yet to be granted and exploration permit from the Department of Natural Resources.  Submit your comments to Department of Natural Resources below to add your voice to the conversation!
