Overtime to stay at Collie Coal Mine 28 July, 2015 Ben Hagemann Griffin Coal have been prevented from removing overtime from the working roster at its Collie mine, thanks to a Fair Work Commission decision handed down yesterday. The miner sought to reduce the working week from 42 hours to 35 hours in order to avoid paying penalty rates, with plans to operate only on week days. In Griffin Coal’s submission to the Fair Work Commission, it was stated that there were no prohibitions against roster changes in the Production Agreement, and that reference to a “current roster” indicated the possibility of a future roster. MORE AND MORE COAL IS PRODUCED BECAUSE IT IS IN DEMAND Do not let the prophets of Doom mislead you! More on http://www.miningaustralia.com.au/news/overtime-to-stay-at-collie-coal-minechristh
The coal is no good, many advocate the end of coal. But how false is that, how much are the trying to con us, trying to pull a veil in front of our eyes. More coalmines are planned,more coal mines are openned up. COAL EXISTS AND WILL EXIST TO THE END OF TIME AND USED UNTIL THEN. New $6.7 billion coal mine proposed for the Galilee Basin Mining Australia Newsletter 28 July, 2015 Vicky Validakis An Environmental Impact Statement has been submitted for a new $6.7 billion coal mine in Queensland’s Galilee Basin. The China Stone Coal project is being proposed by MacMines Austasia, part of the Meijin Energy Group. The company wants to build a large-scale greenfield coal mine with a yield of up to 38 million tonnes per annum of thermal coal. The EIS said the project would create 3900 jobs and contribute $5.9 billion in government royalties over its 50-year lifespan. Coal will be mined using both open-cut and underground mining methods. Open-cut mining will involve multiple draglines and truck and shovel pre-striping. Underground mining will see up to three operating longwalls in two underground mining areas.

Momentum strong! My sides have been splitting with laughter at that comment. Ever since their Chief Investment Officer unexpectedly left the Company very soon after the large fund-raising and acquisition, this share has slumped. ALL IMO. DYOR. QPquepassa
Although the volume is low at 52,601 the buys are there and the price is at 81.5p but the momentum is strong to run upwards to 120p.christh
Very weak share price. You have to hope 80p holds otherwise there will be carnage as the placing shares get dumped.rcturner2
4 Things to Know About the Coal Industry by Zacks Equity Research Published on March 13, 2015 To Sum Up The black diamond hasn’t seen its last days yet. For the aggressively growing and energy hungry Asian economies, coal seems to be the most popular source of power generation in spite of the inroads being made by renewables. Peabody Energy expects annual global coal demand to rise by 500 million tonnes by 2017. The company further adds that over this period, nearly 225 gigawatts of new coal-fired generation plants are expected to be built, supporting an estimated 8% to 10% increase in seaborne thermal coal demand. A large section of the population in the developing nations of Asia and Africa are yet to have access to electricity. For most of these developing nations, thermal coal is the preferred choice of electricity generation. A disparity between demand and supply in these growing economies will compel them to import coal from abroad. U.S. coal shipments are thus expected to rise going forward. As per a report from the International Energy Agency, total global coal demand for coal is estimated to touch 9 billion tonnes by 2019. Per the report, coal demand will grow at an average rate of 2.1% per year through 2019. China will be responsible for nearly 60% of the global increase in coal demand, despite its efforts to moderate consumption over the long run. hxxp://www.zacks.com/commentary/38523/4-things-to-know-about-the-coal-industrychristh
What Is The Future of Coal? 5/01/2013 @ 8:12AM 19,266 views Coal’s potential transformation might be juxtaposed next to that which occurred in the telecom sector. There, rotary phones were replaced with touch tones that are being supplanted by mobiles and internet protocols. While the coal lobby has fought tenaciously, utilities are ditching their older and dirtier — but still workable — power plants built around the 1950s. Instead, they are installing modern pollution controls and experimenting with advanced coal generation. In fact the U.S. Energy Information Administration says that coal-fired facilities are using $30 billion worth of scrubbers. It says that such devices had been placed at 110 plants in 34 states between 2007 and 2011. So, 60% of the coal fleet now has that equipment. That is working to cut sulfur dioxide emissions that cause acid rain — an emission that has fallen by 68% between 1990 and 2011, the agency says. At the same time, some deep-pocketed utilities — with the assistance of the federal government — are building coal gasification units. Those facilities can cleanse coal of nearly all of its emissions before the fumes leave the smokestack. And because the technology works to concentrate the carbon dioxide, that release could be captured and buried. Here, Duke Energy and Southern Company have such projects while the FutureGen 2.0 is entering a new, critical phase. “The consequence of our modernization program … is going to allow us to retire almost 7,000 megawatts of owned coal plants,” says Duke Energy Chief Executive Jim Rogers, in a conference call. “That is almost 50 units that will be retired. And it will be replaced with more efficient coal and more efficient gas plants …” Read more on http://www.forbes.com/sites/kensilverstein/2013/05/01/what-is-the-future-of-coal/christh
Listening to Mark Cutifani being interviewed live on Bloomberg at 8.15am this morning, he very much made the point that he thought precious metals would eventually recover but that bulk commodities were in for a very tough time ahead. Many would give a lot of credence to the opinion of The CEO of Anglo-American. The problem with some of the majors in the coal sector (Rio and BHP/South32 in particular) is that they are not just cost-cutting and laying off staff and idling certain mines, they are INCREASING volumes into an already over-supplied market. Just read again how they improved things for coal at Anglo Am. Nothing to do with demand or increasing commodity price. Their strategy is to produce more and more, cheaper and cheaper. It is a disaster for the sector. And certain smaller coal miners will be driven into the wall. Even the once mighty Walter Energy Inc filed for bankruptcy. Their actions only serve to exacerbate the fundamental problem in the coal sector of oversupply, falling prices and a switch to renewables. Hence the coal price crash. Moreover, asset values of coal investments are further being written down. That is bad news for everyone's balance-sheet. ALL IMO> DYOR. QPquepassa
Yes QP, what you say is true, but you forgot to mention their coal operations: "Our Coal businesses in Australia and South Africa delivered a 3% underlying EBIT increase due to a combination of productivity improvements, including unit cost reductions of 13% in Australia and 3% in South Africa in local currency terms, and volume discipline in Canada." It is story of a company adjusting to a new pricing environment, and quite right too. And the Anglo share price rose (a little) on these results. The whole commodities sector is going through pain, but will come out the other side leaner and fitter, and more profitable.

"This, along with an expected continued recovery of production within our Kestrel royalty area will further underpin Anglo Pacific's dividend." This means the dividend will be more than 4p next time. That's why he is been buying shares in his pension.It will be a nice booster for the shareholders. So far is 8p per share a year which is extremely good. But the statement hints that the dividend will be increased.christh
Anglo American PLC today reports a $3billion LOSS for first half of 2015 as it takes a one-time $3.5billion write-down of assets. Another industry giant forced to write down asset valuations. ALL IMO> DYOR. QPquepassa
Two months after BHP created and floated South32, the shares are already down 16%. According to today's article on South32 in The Ft, South32 is already facing $1.9bn of impairments on assets producing manganese and coal reflecting a deterioration in market conditions for these commodities. A further organisation facing impairments on coal assets. ALL IMO. DYOR. QPquepassa
Whitehaven Coal. The full story. Released last week. June Quarter Report:- Market Outlook. Chinese imports of both metallurgical and thermal seaborne coal during the first half of calendar year 2015 have declined significantly following the introduction of new import policies. Although Whitehaven is not selling to China, the lower demand from the seaborne market has caused coal prices to fall. In response, several producers have cut metallurgical coal production and redirected their coal into other end markets. For example, exports of metallurgical from the United States in the first half of 2015 are about 20% lower than in 2014. However, increases in metallurgical coal production from Queensland’s Bowen Basin producers have largely offset the United States reductions and when combined with a softening in Chinese steel production, has left the seaborne metallurgical coal market oversupplied. These factors have caused prices for metallurgical coal to fall, with the Q3 hard coking coal price settlement of US$93/t, 15% below the Q2 settlement and at the low end of market expectations. -Oversupplied -Q3 coal price 15% below Q2 -low end of market expectations -Lower demand seaborne coal -Several producers have cut metallurgical coal production Also, elswehere in the Report, mention of stockpiling at Narrabri:- http://www.whitehavennews.com.au/wp-content/uploads/2015/07/June-2015-Quarterly-Report-FINAL.pdf ALL IMO.

The latest issue of the New Scientist reports that the use of cola, well coal any way, continues to rise globally and that in Asia and Africa new coal burning plants are being built to take advantage of the low coal price.bolador
QP, It would seem that all reports agree that dirty coal is dirty and that the more developed economies of USA and Europe are already cutting back. That, really does not have much effect on Anglo Pacific. To quote your article ... 2. Even China Is Approaching Peak Coal The biggest power investments are now happening in renewable energy, but fossil fuels will be with us for decades to come. The global burning of coal won't peak on a global scale until around 2025, according to BNEF. But that doesn't indicate a thriving industry. Even China, the world's biggest consumer of coal, wants to be rid of it. ... ... - peak coal around 2025. Thus, Anglo Pacific have 5-10 years to put their portfolio in order.piedro
Buenos Dias, QuePassaHombre, you really must get out more ?djgrantb
Just in case anyone missed it, the once mighty Walter Energy Inc filed for bankruptcy under Chapter 11 the other day. A big name to go bankrupt. They are known as a pure play metallurgical coal mining company. Another victim of the enormous fall in the price of coking coal. The story is widely found on the web. Seems pretty certain that shareholders will end up with nothing as Walter Inc struggles with creditors over its $5billion debt pile. Further evidence of the highly negative sector backdrop and enormous difficulties in the coal mining industry. ALL IMO. DYOR. QPquepassa
