A permitting delay by the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) to evaluate the approval of the Bailey mine permit for the 4L panel has pressed the company to move the longwall to another panel to resume operations.
The company expects the longwall move to last about four weeks and is implementing several measures to mitigate the production impact from this delay, including working added unscheduled shifts at the remaining four longwalls, compared with the previous five-and-a-half-day schedule.
