The World Coal Association (WCA) has announced that Bowie Resource Partners has joined as the association’s newest member.
Bowie Resource Partners closely follows the addition of Karakan Invest in May this year and broadens WCA’s ever-growing, global network of major coal producers, national coal associations and other non-profit bodies with an interest in the future of the coal industry.
Bowie Resource Partners is the largest western bituminous coal producer in the US. The company has four mining operations in Utah and Colorado; of which three are longwall mining operations (Bowie Mine, Skyline Mine and Sufco Mine), as well as one board-and-pillar operation; the Dugout Canyon Mine. The company produces an aggregate of 13 million t of high-Btu, low-sulfur bituminous coal.
Milton Catelin, Chief Executive of the WCA, welcomed Bowie Resources Partners to the organisation, commenting: “We are very pleased to welcome Bowie to WCA. Bowie joins seven other members from the US, indicating coal remains a significant part of the energy mix across the US. Bowie has a keen focus on mining safety, environmental stewardship, and the use of high-grade clean coal. WCA are looking forward to drawing on their experience in these areas.”
Manie Dreyer, Chief Executive Officer, Bowie Resource Partners, said: “I am very pleased to continue my relationship with the WCA, most recently as CEO of Bowie Resource Partners (BRP) following the addition of BRP as the newest WCA member. BRP shares the WCA vision that coal will continue to form the foundation of future energy supply in the medium term and that this can be done in a sustainable and responsible manner. We look forward to working with the WCA team and other shareholders and stakeholders to achieve its goals."
