Biodiversity Approaches

Through extensive baseline studies and monitoring efforts Cloud Peak Energy has a strong knowledge of the ecosystems and species in the permit area and peripheral areas. This information will be incorporated into detailed reclamation and conservation plans that focus on habitat in the post-mine landscape.

Example actions include: advanced monitoring and mitigation measures, innovative reclamation techniques that create quality wildlife habitat on reclamation, playa reconstruction, shrub establishment in reclamation, and establishment of topographic and habitat diversity in reclamation.
