Coal Mining

$ 99.00

The 580 coal producers in the U.S. sell coal to electric utilities, industrial facilities, steel manufacturers, and energy marketing firms or traders. Exports are also an important market for U.S. coal producers. Coal mines are classified by their mining method and the type of coal they mine. Surface mining is the predominant mining method, particularly in western states, while underground mining is often used in eastern states. Coal varies by its heat content, ranging from lignite (the lowest grade) to subbituminous, bituminous, and anthracite (the highest grade).
