Farmersburg Mine

From Global Energy Monitor

Farmersburg Mine is a surface operation mine in Vigo and Sullivan Counties in Indiana, and is a Peabody Energy operation. The mine opened in 1996 and shipped 3.3 million tons of medium sulfur coal in 2008. Its workforce of 260 uses a combination of dragline, truck/shovel, and tractor push to uncover coal in the Indiana No. 7 and No. 6 seams. The coal is transported by train to multiple utilities.[1]

In July 2010, Peabody Indiana Services LLC notified the state Department of Workforce Development that it intends to close its Farmersburg surface mine between Aug. 30 and Sept. 13, 2010. The St. Louis-based coal company says it expects to offer jobs at other mines to a majority of employees at the operations about 15 miles south of Terre Haute.[2]
