This list was compiled in July 2011 by Center reporters Jason Smathers, Julie Strupp and Kate Golden. Caveats: It’s not exhaustive. The status of sites may change. And some sites may be listed with just a mine or a plant but actually have both; reporters listed only what they could verify with reliable sources, such as county or company officials.
