Maximum recovery of high-quality coal to meet the growing needs of electric power generation keynotes the design of a multi-million-dollar preparation plant described here. Ultra-modern equipment and techniques were utilized in the plant's design to obtain optimum efficiency in extracting the final ounce of coal from the run-of-the-mill product-- even down to 100 mesh size. Engineered for 10,000-ton trains, the plant is claimed to be "one of the most advanced and efficient preparation plants in service anywhere." Primary structures in the preparation plant are: (1) unit train loading station; (3) main plant, containing all cleaning facilities; and (3) raw coal breaking building, containing rotary breaker.
