Colorado Coal Production Continues to Drop

The Grand Junction (CO) Daily Sentinel reports that “Colorado coal production in 2015 continues to fall after dropping to a 20-year low last year, state data shows.”  

“Much of the drop can be attributed to mining cutbacks at Peabody Energy’s Twentymile (Foidel Creek) Mine in Routt County and to a lesser degree at Bowie Resource Partners’ Bowie No. 2 Mine in Delta County.”  

“Statewide, 2015 production through August totaled 13.9 million tons, down from 15.5 million tons for the first eight months of last year. Production totaled nearly 40 million tons in 2004 and just under 23 million tons last year.”
