Quality Control in Export Coal

A common problem facing the management of a coal mine producing coal for the export market is that of having to satisfy minimum quality requirements, specified in the contract with the buyer, on the coal loaded at the export harbour. This is complicated by the fact that the last point at which the mine has any control over what is exported is ...
