Captive coal is defined as outright ownership and operation of a coal mine, ownership of coal reserves with another company mining the coal, or having a loan guarantee arrangement with a coal mining company. In 1965 only 13.4 milliion tons or about 5.5 percent of all coal used in electric utilties came from captive mines. By 1975, however, 27 electric utilities were using 48.4 million tons of captive coal, or 11.2 percent of all coal used in the industry.
