GILLETTE, Wyo. — Wyoming really does live and die by coal — here's proof.

Managers of a new Gillette cemetery are wondering what to do about a large coal seam they've found just below the ground. The hard coal would get in the way of burying caskets.

Cemetery trustees reviewed the problem Tuesday. Engineers say the low-grade coal renders about 20 percent of the cemetery almost unusable.

Proposed solutions include removing the coal at an estimated cost of $3.4 million.

Trustees plan to vote on what to do later.
