Somerville Mining Complex
The Somerville Mining Complex comprises the Somerville South and Somerville North mines, two surface operations operated by Peabody Energy and located in Gibson County near Oakland City.
In 2008, the mine shipped a total of 4.5 million tons of medium-sulfur coal to a variety of community and industrial customers. Both mines are truck and shovel operations with a workforce of 100 that operate on two shifts year round.
Peabody also owns the Somerville Central Mine in the same area as Somerville Mines North and South.
Peabody combined its Somerville North Mines with its Somerville Central Mine and its Somerville South with its newer Wild Boar Mine to create more efficient mining operations. The Somerville Mining Complex as a production facility was disbanded and does not show in the EIA database as a coal mine.
