COAL

Crews prepare for blasting in the coal seam at the Spring Creek Mine, a Cloud Peak Energy property in southern Montana, Friday, May 17, 2013. At rear a split in the seam created by a geologic fault shows the seam closer to the surface. Pending new ports for shipment to Asia through either the U.S. or Canada, Cloud Peak Energey hopes to open new high-grade coal mines on and near the Crow Reservation in southern Montana. The tribe is equally hopeful the new mines would bring long-awaited economic stability to the tribe. (Kevin Moloney for the New York Times)
