Thunder Basin also announced that its Coal Creek mine rescue team finished first and its Black Thunder mine rescue team finished second at the 33rd annual International Surface Mine Rescue Competition held August 1-3 in Gillette, Wyo.

"These exceptional results reflect the strong dedication of Thunder Basin's employees to working safely," said Arch's Senior Vice President of Operations Kenneth D. Cochran. "We're especially proud of the members of our world-class rescue teams, like those at Thunder Basin, who voluntarily train year-round."
