Navajos will assess purchase of coal mine
The Navajo Nation is spending $2.3 million for due diligence of their proposal to buy the Navajo coal mine in northwest New Mexico from BHP Billiton. The mine is a major employee of Navajos and is the source of all the coal for the Four Corners power plant that supplies Arizona Public Service customers.
