The increase in coal exports contributes to an expected 58 MMst (8%) increase in coal production in In , coal production is forecast to increase by 10 MMst (1%). Maybe all the projections are wrong, and coal in West Virginia has a really bright future. That seems pretty unlikely, and a tremendously risky bet for our state. In , West Virginia coal mines produced million tons. About 25 percent of coal mined is shipped to foreign markets and used mainly in steel manufacturing. Another 15 percent is used by the domestic steel industry. The rest of the coal mined in West Virginia is used to generate electric power.
Total Economic Impact of Coal on West Virginia’s Economy. Coal is currently mined in 30 counties in West Virginia. According to data from the West Virginia Office of Miners’ Health, Safety and Training, coal mining in West Virginia has provided an average of 23, direct mining jobs plus anot support jobs (verified data via West Virginia University and Marshall University. Next, the coal-county effects (c 1jt) of three coal-mining counties were predicted based on these counties’ historical characteristics and the estimated parameters. The case study of two Virginia coal-mining counties (Russell County and Lee County) illustrated how our finding could be meaningful in the real : Ruoding Shi, Susan Meacham, George C. Davis, Wen You, Yu Sun, Cody Goessl.

Get this from a library. An analysis of the impacts of alternative coal facilities on three West Virginia counties. [Diana Dixon-Davis; James E Metzger; Erik J Stenehjem; Argonne National Laboratory. Energy and Environmental Systems Division.]. Fig. 2 [38,39]. Being one of the major resources in West Virginia's economy [2,3] coal occurs in 53 of West Virginia’s 55 counties .
The economic benefits of the industry stems from tax revenue generation which stood at $ million or 10 percent of the total in . For more on the economic benefits of coal in the state, see Table 1 File Size: 4MB.
This analysis considers the possible economic impacts on the state of West Virginia, a longtime leading producer of coal, resulting from potentially declining future coal production and offers insights into the potential for—and policy mechanisms to support—diversifying the state's economy.
Aims: The paper analyzes the impacts of coal mining activities on West Virginia’s environment using GIS.
Study Design: Adopted a mixscale appoach. Methodology: The aproach is applied to GIS and primary data connected to descriptive statistics by analyzing the impacts of mining with data collected at the state, county and watershed level.
Three companies controlled more than 60% of coal produced in West Virginia inand all three were headquartered out-of-state. Less than 10% of coal produced in West Virginia (shown in blue) was controlled by in-state owners (the lighter shade represents entities with some in-state ownership).

A second paper showed that pregnant mothers who lived in mining counties in West Virginia were at higher risk for a low birth weight delivery, controlling for other risks (Ahern et al., b). A third paper documented higher rates of birth defects for mothers who during their pregnancy lived in counties where mountaintop removal was practiced (Ahern et al., a).Cited by: 1.
Introduction. Since its introduction in the s, mountaintop removal (MTR) mining has become a major method of coal mining in and around Central Appalachia (including parts of Kentucky, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Virginia, and West Virginia) because it is typically faster, cheaper, and less labor intensive than underground mining (Holzman, ).Cited by: 8.
The Mountain View Mine, near Thomas, West Virginia provides coal for the nearby Mount Storm Power Plant. A research facility in the state aims to broaden the use of coal Author: Casey Leins. Last month colleagues and I published a paper in the journal Environmental Research Letters, focusing on the economic impacts of future coal production on West Virginia.
Using scenarios for projected coal production published by the Energy Information Administration in its Annual Energy Outlook, we set out to understand how these projections might impact the economy of West Virginia, the second largest coal-producing.

However, producing and using coal affects the environment. Effects of coal mining. Surface mines (sometimes called strip mines) were the source of about 63% of the coal mined in the United States in These mining operations remove the soil and rock above coal deposits, or seams.
The largest surface mines in the United States are in Wyoming. We discuss the three counties in turn. Boone County, West Virginia. Boone County (populat) lies in southern West Virginia and forms part of the Central Appalachian coal basin.
Along with other southern West Virginia counties, it has long been a center of coal extraction (U.S. Department of.

COAL mining of all kinds has long played a vital role in the West Virginia economy, and the state still sits on more than 30 billion tons of coal reserves, according to federal : Tom Zeller Jr.
legislation that could reduce the competitiveness of Kentucky coal, and the growing impact of coal on economic, social, and environmental health.
This Virginia report is one of three similar reports for other Central Appalachian states; the other two focus on Tennessee and West Virginia. An Institute for Health Policy Research study determined that mortality rates in Appalachia are correlated with coal production.
In twenty West Virginia coal counties mining more than a million tons of coal per year and having a total population ofthere are ab deaths per year, with 1, of those statistically attributed to deaths from heart, respiratory and kidney disease from living in an Appalachian coal county.U.S.

MORGANTOWN — Legal experts praised West Virginia’s co-tenancy legislation Thursday during the first day of the West Virginia Oil and Natural G +5 New NETL supercomputer, research facility to boost WV's energy productivity.West Virginia is the largest coal producer east of the Mississippi River, and accounts for 10% of the nation's production.
It leads the nation in coal production from underground mines, and has the nation's second largest reserves behind Wyoming. West Virginia has an annual 13 million barrel coal-to-liquid fuel production capacity.SHFWire graphic by Griffin Moores In ,the state passed the West Virginia Severance Tax Act,which instituted a 5 percent tax on the sale price of coal – the vast majority of which goes to the state’s general fund,with a smaller portion distributed among the counties.
In ,West Virginia collected $ million in severance taxes.
