Market Summary

Although primarily considered a source of energy, coal has a number of uses, depending on its characteristics and grades. Thermal coal is in great abundance, but there is a large, stable and growing market for thermal coal, as energy is in demand and coal is considered an inexpensive and reliable source. Thermal coal prices vary, but 2012 spot prices range from $65 – 85 per ton, depending on region, season, etc.

Premium coals are in high demand and their supply is far less abundant than thermal coal. Metallurgical coal, also known or met coal or coking coal, is used as the carbon source in steel production. Demand for met coal is tied largely to industrial demand and global economic growth. Prices for metallurgical coal range from $200 – $350 per ton.

Aside from metallurgical coal, there are niche markets for specialty coals such as the silicon metals market and activated carbon. Novadx is currently supplying coals for both activated carbon and silicon metals. Prices for activated carbon market demand a significant premium in the market. Silicon metals coal used during the production of silicon metals, has a high BTU rating and demands a significant premium in the market.

    Once the territory of science-fiction movies, recent large-scale adoption of automated heavy equipment is allowing mines to greatly reduce their labor costs. Trucks, loaders, boring and drilling machines and more are now available with remote or semi-autonomous capacity.  Other upcoming automation advances, such as fully-automated long-haul trains (which are now being tested), will continue to expand the range of tasks that require few or no workers to be involved.
