Welcome to CALM’s new website!

After over 5 years of fighting the Deer Run Mine in Hillsboro, IL and raising awareness about the harmful effects of the coal life cycle on our communities, Citizens Against Longwall Mining has decided to take it’s struggle online!

Here you’ll find everything there is to know about Deer Run, as well as information about longwall mining and coal waste (slurry, ash, gob and the like) in central Illinois. If we have convinced you, check out our Get Involved page, Donate, and please join us at our Monthly Meetings on the second Tuesday of each month at the Montgomery County Farm Bureau!

We’ll also be posting updates so you can stay informed about what’s going on in the coalfields of central Illinois.
