Report summary

Nearly 17% of US coal production is at risk of idling or closure, totalling 162 Mst, as these mine's total cash costs plus sustaining capital expenditures exceed current market pricing. The majority of this production originates in Central Appalachia where approximately 72% of the total output is under water. Other US regions also have substantial amounts of coal at risk, ranging from 48% in Southern Appalachia to a low of 8% in both the Western Bituminous and Powder River Basin.
