Coal again at Ffos-y-Fran

c

The good news: Welsh steam coal is now available again at Ffos-y-Fran in Merthyr Wales. The washing and sorting plant has been repaired and stock is now available. The mine is currently due to close in November 2022, but it is hoped that the Welsh Government will extend this deadline. The company is working on plans and an application to extend the site and mining for another two years. The not-so-good thing is the price. 20 tonnes, for example, is currently said to cost £408, this time last year it was £220.
