In this month’s issue of World Coal, keynote articles from Linda Taglieri, AME, and Tim Mortimer, Mortimer Mining, explore global coal industry dynamics and trends during these currently difficult times. Meanwhile, the regional report from Amy Gibbs and Daisy Jackson – both with JLT Specialty Ltd – explains how China’s cooling demand for coal will affect international miners and explore the impact of the slowdown in Chinese coal import demand. The October issue features articles on coal transportation & logistics, mine lighting, as well as mine infrastructure planning. Also in the issue are articles from Toby White – who charts the development of a new co-operative coal mining project in the UK – and Peter Ellis and Dan Peel, who explain that conserving cash and adding value are key to junior mining and exploration company survival. The October Industry View, from Capt. Giordano Scotto d'Aniello, Coeclerici Logistics, explains how transhipment can provide a solution to logistical problems faced by coal mining companies, steel mills and power plants.
