No bidders for coal leases inside Ohio national forest

No bidders for coal leases inside Ohio national forest
NELSONVILLE, Ohio (AP) — The federal government says it received no bids during a competitive lease sale for coal underneath about 430 acres of Ohio’s Wayne National Forest.

The Bureau of Land Management-Eastern States released the results of last week’s offering on Tuesday. Leases involved seven tracts in Perry and Morgan counties that contain an estimated 1.4 million tons of sub-surface mineable federal coal.

The sale came in response to a lease application by CCU Coal and Construction, formerly Westmoreland Coal Co., which already operates an adjacent privately-owned underground coal mine.
