An expected significant drop in first-quarter thermal coal production has the Powder River Basin’s largest producer making more adjustments to its workforce.

Peabody Energy Corp., which operates three mines in Campbell County and accounts for more than 40% of the overall coal production in the PRB, has eliminated three permanent positions at its Wyoming operations, the company has confirmed. It also has reduced its temporary workforce by 10 people between its Rawhide and Caballo mines.
