BOOM! The American Coal Industry Just EXPLODED With News Obama Would Hate…

WASHINGTON, DC - FEBRUARY 16: U.S. President Donald Trump signs H.J. Res. 38, disapproving the rule submitted by the US Department of the Interior known as the Stream Protection Rule in the Roosevelt Room of the White House on February 16, 2017 in Washington, DC. The Department of Interior's Stream Protection Rule, which was signed during the final month of the Obama administration, "addresses the impacts of surface coal mining operations on surface water, groundwater, and the productivity of mining operation sites," according to the Congress.gov summary of the resolution.

Western Pennsylvania is about to reap almost 600 open jobs at the opening of a new coal mine, per The Daily Caller.

The opening of the Acosta Deep coal mine apparently signals a slight shift for the coal industry.

Check it out:

The Acosta Deep coal mine will create 70 to 100 direct full-time jobs and another 500 indirect jobs, according to Corsa Coal, the company building the mine. The site is expected to produce 400,000 tons of coal a year, mostly for U.S. and Chinese steel companies.

“The opening of the Acosta Deep Mine marks a return to coal industry job creation in Somerset County, Pennsylvania,” Corsa Coal officials said in a statement. “Metallurgical prices have risen to record levels on the strength of strong steel demand and supply scarcity.”

Coking coal prices are soaring in recent months after Australia and China invoked policies to curb production.

Trump’s presidency has already begun to boost the industry, following 8 years of federal regulation by the Obama administration that significantly shrunk the job market.
