In 2023, the Savage Mine, which is owned by Westmoreland, lost its last customer when the sugar beet plant in Sidney, owned by American Crystal, closed down. Additionally, the Lewis and Clark Generating Station, which is owned by MDU and was the primary customer of the mine, ceased coal burning operations in 2021.
