Arch Coal (NYSE:ACI) Production Resumes at Dugout Canyon Mine

Subsidiary of Arch Coal (NYSE:ACI), Canyon Fuel, said its Dugout Canyon Mine in Utah has brought its coal production back online after shutting it down temporarily because of concerns over elevated levels of carbon monoxide, which was detected in the latter part of April.

The mined out area in question was permanently sealed, according to a press release from the company, which was the source of the high levels of carbon monoxide at the mine.

The mine produces low-sulfur bituminous coal, and in the first quarter generated about 200,000 tons, accounting for about 2 percent of bituminous coal for the company

Bituminous coal is cleaner burning than its counterpart.
