Wyoming has been the largest producer of coal in the United States sinceand incoal mines employed approximately 1% of the state’s population. Inthere were 17 active coal mines in Wyoming, which produced million short tons, 39 percent of all the coal mined in the US, and more than three.

Wyoming geologists formed a special coal section and coordinated their efforts with 1978 book U.S. Geological Survey to evaluate the northern coal lands of the Powder River Basin. The state agency also reported on the strippable coal reserves of the Hanna Coal Field for the U.S.

The coal monopoly failed in so far as controlling the coal market was concerned on account of the competition of bituminous coal, whose field is practically unlimited, which is more cheaply mined, does not need to be broken, and bears a universal royalty of only ten cents a ton when mined.

Evaluations made in Colombia in were 5 billion metric tons of exploitable coal, of which 5 percent is measured coal, 15 percent is indicated coal, and 80 percent is inferred coal. There are some basins yet to be explored and evaluated; when this is accomplished, total coal resources in Columbia may be as much as 10 billion metric tons.
