PITTSBURGH, March 11, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- CONSOL Energy earned the West Virginia Coal Association's top honor for reclamation, Friday, when it was named the recipient of the Greenlands Award recognizing outstanding performance in reclamation work it completed at its Consolidation Coal Company's Turkey Gap Complex, near Matoaka, W.

The company also earned the Underground Mining South - Deep Mine Reclamation Award for reclamation of its Consolidation Coal Company's Itmann #3 mine, near Itmann , W. Va. The award recognizes exemplary performance in reclamation of a deep mine facility.

Both awards were presented during a luncheon honoring statewide reclamation award recipients at the 40 th annual West Virginia Coal Symposium in Charleston, W. Va. CONSOL Energy Central Appalachia Closed Operations Manager Phil Forshey accepted the awards on behalf of CONSOL Energy.

The Reclamation Awards are co-sponsored by the West Virginia Coal Association and the West Virginia Division of Environmental Protection. To be eligible, a mining operation must be nominated by its local state inspector. Earl Holt was the nominating inspector on both projects.

Katharine Fredriksen, CONSOL Energy senior vice president of environmental strategy and regulatory affairs, noted the reclamation awards are indicative of CONSOL Energy's commitment to being a good steward of the environment. 

"We consider being a good steward of the environment as one of the most important obligations we have," Fredriksen said. "These two recognitions from our regulatory agency build on our record of reclamation and demonstrate CONSOL Energy's commitment to environmental stewardship and returning the land to productive use following the completion of mining."

"Further, the awards we received serve to recognize our commitment to our core value of compliance, and they also serve to demonstrate our commitment to not only meet our statutory obligations, but to go beyond what is required," Fredriksen added.
