Mining at the New Elk coal mine, in Colorado, is expected to start in the second quarter of this year, subject to owner Allegiance Coal raising sufficient startup capital.

The miner at the end of December unveiled the startup mine plan for the New Elk project, which would see the company mine 22.2 million tonnes of saleable coal reserves over a 24-year mine life.

The project would require a startup capital investment of $17.7 million, with total all-in operating costs estimated at $81.3/t, Allegiance said at the end of December.Asian Metal Copyright Meanwhile, Allegiance told that it would look to raise some $15-million to finance project development.Asian Metal Copyright Annual average run-of-mine production is expected to reach 1.Asian Metal CopyrightMining at the New Elk coal mine, in Colorado, is expected to start in the second quarter of this year, subject to owner Allegiance Coal raising sufficient startup capital.Asian Metal Copyright2 million tonnes a year, with average annual saleable coal production reaching 849,000tpy.

While the startup plan has not changed from the one announced in April, adjustments have been made to the number of production units, reducing them from four to two, rescheduling labor and production units to mine the entire Blue seam reserve, and extending the Blue seam mine life from 15 to 24 years.

Allegiance told that the loss of annual production from New Elk from the slow startup mine plan has been offset by the purchase of a similar amount of coal from Mays Mining, allowing the company to maintain a similar coal sales profile for the first 15 years of operation.
