KayentaMine

The Kayenta mine is a surface coal mine on the Navajo Indian Reservation in northern Arizona. About 400 acres are mined and reclaimed each year, providing about 8 million tons of coal annually to the Navajo Generating Station. The Company began operations in 1973 supplying the Navajo Generating Station near Page, Arizona and the majority of our employees at the site are Navajo Indians.
