Allegiance Coal Ltd has announced the first New Elk cargo of metallurgical coal was loaded and sailed last week from the Port of Guaymas in northern Mexico, to China. The event marks a significant achievement for Allegiance returning the New Elk Mine in southern Colorado to production just five months earlier.
The company acknowledges the efforts of its workforce at the New Elk Mine along with Union Pacific Rail, its sales agent, M Resources, and its customs agent at the Port of Guymas, Segrove. Focus is now on executing the next cargo more quickly and more efficiently as production at the mine continues to improve.
Meanwhile, the Black Warrior Mine in Alabama loaded its first barge in the weekend as it starts to move coal to McDuffie Terminal in the Port of Mobile for the second cargo set to sail in the first 10 days of December.
