WESTERN AREA COKING COALS ARE A $200 MILLION BUSINESS

Production of coking coals in the West is briefly reviewed here. Although overall production of coking coals is stabilizing, some expansion and new production are planned in the Raton Field of Northern New Mexico. The Raton Field coals are the strongest in the West and more than 1.4 million tons are produced annually. Several other fields with a history of coking coal production could be reopened if railroads were available or markets developed within a trucking distance.
