Peabody Energy’s Ereen Restoration Project as the Best Eco Mine in 2011
The former 20-hectare Ereen Mine near Bulgan was restored to a productive pasture that ultimately will be used for traditional livestock grazing or hay production. The forage in the seeded areas is more than four times that of the adjacent native lands.
One year after the area was seeded, the Ereen site yielded a successful hay cutting trial, results that were cited by the Mining Journal judges.
