Monday, May 29, 2017
Can you imagine being able to tap into the most productive areas of coalbed methane production in the United States? That is exactly the opportunity that you have when you bring your coal and coal methane business to Gallup, NM. Since the 1980’s the coal beds of the Fruitland Coal Formation have yielded extremely high quantities of coalbed methane, which makes it one of the productive areas for coal production.
Based on their location on the Chaco slope, and the quality of coal, the coal in the Fruitland Coal Formation are perfect for the type of surface mining that is preferred in McKinley county. The coal is thicker and the continuity is greater than is found in other regions, so if you are looking at expanding or starting a business in the coal industry, this is the place to do it.
