Bond Release
Deer Creek Mine
9th East Portal Breakout Area

Energy West Mining Company
P.O. Box 310
Huntington, Utah 84528

	PacifiCorp, by and through its wholly-owned subsidiary, Energy West
Mining Company ("Energy West") as mine operator, hereby submits an
application for Phase II and III bond release for the Deer Creek Mine,
9th East Breakout site.  The said area, located in SE1/4 of the SW1/4
of the SE1/4 of Section 22, Township 17 South, Range 7 East, SLB&M,
has met the regulations of the R645 Utah Coal Rules in regards to
Phase II and III Bond Release (R645-301-880.300). The total acreage
proposed for release is approximately 0.6 acres and is located near
the Cottonwood Wilberg Portals.

	The 9th East Breakout site includes (3) portals developed in 1977 for
mine ventilation.  These (3) concrete collared portals were used until
1990.  In addition, the area had (2) portals developed in the 1920's
for a small mine operation.  The 1977 portals were sealed in 1990.

	Final reclamation of the 9th East breakouts began in the fall of 1999
and was completed in December of the same year.  The concrete collars
were removed and all the portals, including the (2) historic portals
that were developed in 1920, have been backfilled.  The site was
fertilized, mulched and seeded contemporaneously with backfilling and
grading.  Phase I Bond Release for this area was approved on July 31,

	Currently, a surety bond is filed with the Division of Oil, Gas and
Mining in the amount of $4,113,000.00 and is payable to the State of
Utah, Division of Oil, Gas and Mining (DOGM), and the Office of
Surface Mining Reclamation and Enforcement (OSM).   A Renewed mining
permit was issued by the State on February 7, 2006.  PacifiCorp does
not request that a reduction of the bond be made for this site. 

	A copy of the Phase II and III application may be examined at the
office of the Division of Oil, Gas and Mining, 1594 West North Temple,
Suite 1210, Salt Lake City, Utah 84114-5801 and also at the Recorders
Office located in the Emery County Courthouse in Castle Dale, Utah.
Written comments, objections, or requests for an informal conference
may be submitted to the Salt Lake City address. Said comments must be
submitted thirty (30) days from the date of the last publication of
this notice. This notice is being published to comply with the Surface
Mining Control and Reclamation Act of 1977, and State and Federal
regulations promulgated pursuant to said Act.
