FARMINGTON — Last week, Navajo Nation President Ben Shelly stated he would support purchasing Navajo Mine if two conditions were met by the Navajo Nation Council.

Shelly said the council would have to pass the Navajo Nation Energy Policy of 2013 and consider revising the Desert Rock energy project.

Shelly made his statement during an Oct. 4 press conference at the Upper Fruitland Chapter house. Since then, the energy policy has been on the fast track for legislative approval.

The energy policy would set the principles for exploration, development, sustainable management and use of energy resources on tribal lands.

Included in the policy is a section on the future of coal and coal-fired power plants located on the Navajo Nation.
