Westmoreland Kemmerer, Inc. – Kemmerer Mine
Westmoreland Resource Partners – Kemmerer Mine is a 13,400-acre surface mine complex located in the southwest corner of Wyoming. It currently produces coal in three active areas from 12 primary seams and their splits. The seams are steeply dipping at 17° to 20°.
Kemmerer Mine has the unique classification of being a Special Bituminous Coal Mine due to the nature of the deposit in the Adaville Formation. Special Bituminous Mines are allowed unique reclamation standards that focus on creating a variety of habitats and post mine land use options.
Coal from this operation supplies fuel to PacifiCorp’s adjacent Naughton Power Station via overland conveyor. Trona mine customers, approximately 60 miles east of Kemmerer, receive fuel via truck and rail.
