GILLETTE — A last-minute motion from Blackjewel LLC is asking the U.S. Bankruptcy Court to add a condition to the sale of the Eagle Butte and Belle Ayr mines in Wyoming to Eagle Specialty Materials.

While it’s not expected to affect the sale of Blackjewel’s Western assets, the late Monday motion adds another condition to the sale for ESM’s parent company, FM Coal, to also assume about $100 million worth of reclamation obligations on already-defunct Blackjewel Eastern properties.
