Our mission is to promote the love of, and access to, literacy throughout Alaska by collecting books and collaborating with local airlines to ship 5/5. The railroad played a vital role in Alaska's development, moving freight into Alaska while transporting natural resources southward (i.e., coal from the Usibelli coal mine near Healy to Seward and gravel from the Matanuska Valley to Anchorage). It is well known for its summertime tour passenger statehood: Territory of Alaska.

      Petroleum fuels provide the bulk of all energy for electricity, space heating and transportation. Costs are high due to the expense of moving fuel to rural Alaska and the small scale of operations. The high costs have motivated residents to use less and mean rural energy consumption is lower than in urban areas.

      All of this coal comes from the only active coal mine in Alaska, the Usibelli mine. Founded in outside Healy, Alaska, the mine sells coal to six state power plants as well as South Korea and other Pacific Rim countries. The export coal is transported on the Alaska Railroad about miles to Seward, a year-round ice-free port. (left) fork leads to Coal Mine #5 Lake and Backdown Lake, while the south (right) fork leads to the remaining five lakes. Brodie, Paul’s, Rangeview, Dick’s, and Ken’s Lakes are easily accessible and most lie a short distance off the road. The largest of the lakes is Coal Mine #5 at 13 acres, while the rest average about 5 acres in size.

Usibelli Coal Mine has been the only active coal mine in the state sinceproducing to 2 million tons of coal per year. But rising global energy demands and rising prices. The coalbed methane potential for the Central Alaska-Nenana coal province is not as high as the Northern Alaska-Slope coal province.

The coal beds in this coal province are mainly subbituminous, range from 50 to 66 ft (15 to 20 m) in thickness, and occur to depths of 3, ft ( m).

Coal deposits of small or unknown extent occur at many other localities, particularly on the Seward Peninsula and along the Kobuk and lower Yukon Rivers. Less than 10% of Alaska's electricity comes from coal. Most is from gas, hydro, and oil. Most is from gas, hydro, and oil. There are six small coal-fired power plants in Alaska, all found on the "Railbelt" power grid north of the Alaska Range between the Usibelli Coal Mine and the Fairbanks area.

Unfortunate and costly political maneuvers in the early s delayed coal removal, but the Alaska Railroad and then World War II provided incentives for opening mines. Coalbed Methane in Northern Alaska: Potential Resources for Rural Use and Added Supply for the Proposed Trans-Alaska Gas Pipeline Coalbed methane (CBM) in northern Alaska is important because of the need for affordable, local energy sources in remote communities and because of the potential.

Health Hazards of Coal Mining. The coal mining industry is the leading cause of fatal injuries in the United States. According to the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health, the fatality rate for coal mining in was perworkers, more than 11.

Coal has been mined and used in Alaska for more than a century, and still is the principal source of energy for power generation for the interior Alaska region.

Recent events that have caused increases in the cost of energy have spurred new world-wide interest in greater use of lower cost coal in place of oil. The “waxy oil” produced from samples of Alaska coal has geologists wondering if the state's coal-rich regions could have produced large quantities of oil eons ago.
