INTRODUCTION: Coal mining in Indiana is a constantly changing industry. Each year new mines arise while others cease production or enter various phases of reclamation. The purpose of this publication is to provide information describing Indiana's currently permitted coal mines. A brief description of past, present, and future elements of the coal-mining industry in Indiana is presented, followed by a directory of coal mines currently permitted by the Indiana Division of Reclamation (IDOR). Each mine is presented by showing location maps, a production history, and administrative information. A registry of coal companies is included, as well as an overview of Indiana's coal processing areas. Intrinsically, directories contain rapidly changing information, but every effort was made to include data that is as accurate and comprehensive as possible
