Buckskin Mine is a surface coal mining operation in Campbell County, Wyoming, operated by Kiewit Mining Group and owned by Kiewit Peter Sons.

As of May 2010, the U.S. Bureau of Land Management is considering issuing a coal lease to Kiewit Mining to extend the life of the mine. The consideration is the result of a March 24, 2006, application made by Kiewit Mining Properties, Inc. to lease the Federal coal in the Hay Creek II Tract, northwest of the Buckskin Mine and approximately 12 miles north of Gillette, Wyoming. The Hay Creek II Tract contains 419.04 acres, and Kiewit estimates that the current tract includes approximately 54.1 million tons of recoverable coal.[1]
