Summary:

The Mettiki Coal Mine is in the southwest corner of Garrett County, Maryland on the Appalachian Plateau and is part of the Upper Potomac Coalfield. The region consists primarily of generally gently folded consolidated sedimentary shale, siltstone, and sandstone units. It is in an area of alternating synclines (Pennsylvanian outcrops) and anticlines (Devonian outcrops) oriented in northeast to southwest directions, with the mine located in a syncline along the Upper Potomac River basin. Coal is extracted from the Pennsylvanian Upper Freeport coal seam.

Production

The reduced volumes were caused by challenging geologic conditions at the Mettiki longwall operation that delayed the development of a new longwall district, idling the longwall there for essentially the entire second half of 2023.
