Coal prices and outlook U.S. Energy Information

May 26, 2020 Bituminous coal accounted for about 48% of U.S. coal production in 2019. Anthracite contains 86%–97% carbon and has a heating value that is slightly higher on average than bituminous coal. Anthracite is the least abundant rank of coal in the United States, and it generally accounts for less than 1% of annual U.S. coal production.

Coal mining

Coal mining is the process of extracting coal from the ground. Coal is valued for its energy content and since the 1880s has been widely used to generate electricity. Steel and cement industries use coal as a fuel for extraction of iron from iron ore and for cement production. In the United Kingdom and South Africa, a coal mine and its structures are a colliery, a coal mine is called a 'pit
