FILE - In this Aug. 28, 2009, file photo, heavy equipment moves coal outside Signal Peak Energy’s Bull Mountain mine near Roundup, Mont. A central Montana coal mine reached an agreement Monday, Jan. 11, 2016, with environmentalists and state regulators that is intended to avoid a major shutdown as a declining coal market leaves the future of some mining companies in doubt. The deal comes after a state review panel rejected an expansion permit granted to the Bull Mountain Mine in 2013, threatening to halt most operations if the dispute could not be resolved.
