Summary:

Known as the Suntrana Formation, three seams of coal ranging from an average of 18 to 30 feet thick are covered with layers of overburden that can be more than 100 feet thick. After removal of the overburden, the coal is mined, crushed, and brought to market mainly by rail, though a small amount of coal is trucked to consumers as well.
