In a dispute over when mining permits expire, five environmentalists have accused U.S. mining regulators of allowing work to begin at an Alaska coal mine long after the project's permits should have lapsed.

The groups, represented by Trustees for Alaska, sued the U.S. Office of Surface Mining Reclamation and Enforcement (OSMRE) in the U.S. District Court for the District of Alaska over the development of the Wishbone Hill coal mine near Sutton, Alaska by Usibelli Coal Mine, Inc.
