New Elk Mine

A quarterly report released last week by Allegiance Coal Ltd. shows New Elk Mine (NEM) has made “gradual improvements” in production with a single production unit achieving 75% of the mine’s target production by the end of September with “continuing improvements in October.”

The mine produced less than 5,000 saleable metric tons of coking coal in May but has since made steady improvement, except for a setback in August due to COVID-19 quarantines. In September it produced 20,000 metric tons of saleable coking coal.
