Abstract
  • Coal was discovered in southwestern Washington over One hundred years ago but until recently was of only minor local importance. From the peak production year, in which less than one-third of a million tons of coal were mined, until the late 1960's, the coal production of the area degenerated to a point that the coal virtually reverted from a resource to a reserve. Beginning in late 1970, a coal mine near Centralia, Washington, began producing coal at a yearly rate that will not only greatly exceed the previous peak production year of southwestern Washington, but will greatly exceed the entire state's previous peak production year. This report examines the historic utilization of the southwestern Washington coal, the factors behind the development of the coal mine near Centralia, the method of mining being employed at this mine, the flow of the material from this mine to and through the consuming facility, and some of the environmental aspects associated with the mine and consuming facility.
