Extension Bulletin Examines Coal Impact and Trends


February 4, 2014 — Coal mining and production has been intertwined with Wyoming’s economy from the 1800s to present day. An updated University of Wyoming Extension bulletin captures the past, present and future of the industry.

“Today, coal is still a major contributor to Wyoming’s economy,” says bulletin author Thomas Foulke, research scientist in the Department of Agricultural and Applied Economics in the College of Agriculture and Natural Resources. “This report uses the historical context of the development of Wyoming’s coal industry to explore the impact on the state’s economy, current trends in the industry and future growth.”

“Economic Trends in Wyoming’s Mineral Sector: Coal, 2nd ed.,” B-1116R, is available for free download by going to www.uwyo.edu/ces  and clicking on Publications on the left-hand side of the page. Type the bulletin title or number in the search field.
