GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (AP) - State regulators will hold a local public hearing on a proposal to build a plant to produce synthetic gas from coal waste in western Colorado.

The Daily Sentinel reports (https://bit.ly/2gRmeBA ) that the planned meetings come after environmentalists, local residents and state regulators have raised questions about Bowie Resources LLC’s plans to build a coal gasification plant at the Bowie No. 2 Mine near Paonia (PAY’-own-ee-ah).

Colorado Division of Mining, Reclamation and Safety Director Ginny Brannon says there are many parts of Bowie Resource’s proposal that are still unknown. The Division has received no further information about the proposal beyond the initial application.
