Independent producer Westmoreland Coal confirmed it has lengthened a long-term supply deal with Saskatchewan Power Corp. (SaskPower) by an additional 14 years. The deal, which includes more than 58 million tons, will now run through the end of 2029. The coal will originate at Westmoreland’s Poplar River surface mine in the south-central Saskatchewan town of Coronach. The mine has been supplying coal to SaskPower’s Poplar River Generating Station since 1978.
