    General Notes: *Median value gives the value for the "average" county for this metric, the 50th percentile of all counties reporting data. Median values should not be seen as nationally representative. **A short ton is defined as 2000 pounds. Average mine price is calculated by dividing the total free on board (f.o.b). rail/barge value of the coal sold by the total coal sold. 2011 does not include data from mines producing less than 25,000 short tons. Years 2001-2010, do not include data from mines producing less than 10,000 short tons and excludes silt, culm, refuse bank, slurry dam, and dredge operations.
