July 19, 2010 UK COAL issues its pre-close trading update, together with an outlook statementfor the full year, prior to the publication of its Interim Results for the six months ended 26 June 2010 on 25 August 2010.
June 30, 2008 Daw Mill is exploiting the current panel, which contained over 6m tonnes at the start of 2008, and will continue through until the end of 2009.
December 31, 2007 Daw Mill is working well on the new panel, which, given the thickness of its large seams, consists of over 5 million tonnes of coal. There are no further face changes until late in 2009.
In the second half of 2007, as planned, Daw Mill had to manage a face change and encountered delays and difficulties in ramping up production, further reducing output against original expectations for the year
In the early part of 2007, there was a period of non-production (one month) at Daw Mill following the fatality in Jan/07. Production remained very low for 2 further months whilst additional safety work was carried out.
