June 2014

In this month’s issue of World Coal, the regional report focuses on Australia, where Anthony Fensom reports on the country’s coal industry. The June issue features a keynote article from the Boston Consulting Group, in collaboration with JSW Group, which discusses the implementation of Mine Operations Systems Transformation strategies at a Polish coal mine. The June issue also features articles on underground mine automation, mobile conveyors, recruitment & retention, preparation plant operations, as well as three general interest articles. The Industry View, from Gregory Boyce, CEO of Peabody Energy, explains that coal-industry professionals must work with allies across all sectors, and with multinational, non-governmental organisations and governments all over the world, to develop solutions that will end the crisis of energy poverty.
