Antelope mine

A full coal train heads out from the Antelope mine in southern Campbell County. Navajo Transitional Energy Co. bought the mine from Cloud Peak Energy last year.

After extensive negotiations and legal wrangling, Campbell County finally seems to be on track to begin receiving tens of millions of dollars in unpaid coal production taxes.

The Campbell County Commission on Tuesday morning unanimously approved a payment plan agreement with Navajo Transitional Energy Co. on an estimated $44 million in back ad valorem taxes owed for production from the last half of 2017 through last year.
