While much of the Powder River Basin’s coal industry was monitoring a U.S. Bankruptcy Court sale hearing for Blackjewel LLC’s Wyoming coal mines in West Virginia on Wednesday, another bankruptcy court also was approving the sale of Cloud Peak Energy’s three active Powder River Basin mines to Navajo Transitional Energy Corp.

Judge Kevin Gross of the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the District of Delaware signed an order Wednesday giving final approval of the sale of the Antelope and Cordero Rojo mines in Campbell County and Spring Creek mine in Montana.
