U.S. Coal Production to Hit New High


Item #d99mar38

Production of coal will hit 1.12 billion tons, predicts the National Mining Association in the Feb. 1, 1999, issue of its newsletter Mining Week. That volume of production will set a record for the third straight year. The demand is for electricity generation, as utilities seek low-cost fuel. Utilities will use 935 million tons of coal to generate 57% of the electricity produced by the public utility sector.
