Shares of

International Coal

( ICO) were among the

NYSE's

losers Wednesday, slumping 15% after the coal producer slashed its 2006 earnings and revenue outlook.

The company now sees earnings of $23 million to $33 million, or 15 cents to 21 cents a share, down from an earlier forecast of $60 million to $80 million, or 39 cents to 53 cents a share. The company now sees revenue of $980 million to $1.05 billion, down from an earlier forecast of $1.02 billion to $1.1 billion. Analysts polled by Thomson First Call project 2006 earnings of 46 cents a share while a single analyst expects revenue of $1.02 billion.

"We have faced an unprecedented number of operating challenges thus far in 2006, many of which have demanded an extraordinary amount of time and attention from our management team," CEO Ben Hatfield said in a statement. International Coal said that it was hurt by the bankruptcy of a key coal supplier, higher-than-expected diesel fuel costs, and by operational issues at several mines. Shares were trading down $1.30 to $7.20.

Shares of

Glamis Gold

(GLG) - Get Report

fell nearly 5% after the gold producer cut its 2006 gold production forecast. The company now expects to produce about 620,000 ounces of gold, down from an earlier forecast of 670,000 ounces. The cash cost of production, meanwhile, will now be about $190 an ounce, up from an earlier estimate of $160 to $170 an ounce. Glamis attributed the revised guidance to mechanical difficulties at its new Marlin mill facility in Guatemala.
