Business Segments Description

Mining Operations
The following describes the operating characteristics of the principal mines and reserves of each of our business units and affiliates.

Powder River Basin Operations
The North Antelope Rochelle and Caballo mines are serviced by both major western railroads, the Burlington Northern Santa Fe Railway and the Union Pacific Railroad. The Rawhide Mine is serviced by the Burlington Northern Santa Fe Railway.
Our Wyoming Powder River Basin reserves are classified as surface mineable, subbituminous coal with seam thickness varying from 70 to 105 feet. The sulfur content of the coal in current production ranges from 0.2% to 0.4% and the heat value ranges from 8,300 to 9,000 Btu’s per pound.

North Antelope Rochelle Mine

The North Antelope Rochelle Mine is located 65 miles south of Gillette, Wyoming. The North Antelope Rochelle facility is capable of loading its production in up to 2,000 railcars per day. The North Antelope Rochelle Mine produces premium quality coal with a sulfur content averaging 0.2% and a heat value ranging from 8,500 to 8,900 Btu per pound. The North Antelope Rochelle Mine produces the lowest sulfur coal in the United States, using two draglines along with six truck-and-shovel fleets.

Caballo Mine

The Caballo Mine is located 20 miles south of Gillette, Wyoming. Caballo is a truck-and-shovel operation with a coal handling system that includes two 12,000-ton silos and two 11,000-ton silos.

Rawhide Mine

The Rawhide Mine is located ten miles north of Gillette, Wyoming and uses truck-and-shovel mining methods.

Southwest Operations

We own and operate three mines in our Southwest operations — two in Arizona and one in New Mexico. The Arizona mines, which are managed by our Peabody Western Coal Company subsidiary, supply primarily bituminous compliance coal under long-term coal supply agreements to electricity generating stations in the region. In New Mexico, we own and manage, through our Peabody Natural Resources We control 1.0 billion tons of proven and probable coal reserves in our Southwest operations.

Black Mesa Mine

The Black Mesa Mine, which is located on the reservations of the Navajo Nation and Hopi Tribe in Arizona. The Black Mesa Mine coal was crushed, mixed with water and then transported 273 miles through an underground pipeline owned by a third party. The coal was conveyed to the Mohave Generating Station near Laughlin, Nevada, which is operated and partially owned by Southern California Edison. The mine and pipeline were designed to deliver coal exclusively to the plant, which had no other source of coal. The Mohave Generating Station coal supply agreement expired on December 31, 2005, and has not been extended.

Legal Proceedings of this report. Hourly workers at this mine were members of the United Mine Workers of America (“UMWA”).

Kayenta Mine

The Kayenta Mine is adjacent to the Black Mesa Mine and uses four draglines in three mining areas. The Kayenta Mine coal is crushed, then carried 17 miles by conveyor belt to storage silos where it is loaded onto a private rail line and transported 83 miles to the Navajo Generating Station, operated by the Salt River Project near Page, Arizona. The mine and railroad were designed to deliver coal exclusively to the power plant, which has no other source of coal. The Navajo coal supply agreement extends until 2011. Hourly workers at this mine are members of the UMWA.

Lee Ranch Mine

The Lee Ranch Mine, located near Grants, New Mexico, sold approximately 5.0 million tons of medium sulfur coal during 2005. Lee Ranch shipped the majority of its coal to two customers in Arizona and New Mexico under coal supply agreements extending until 2020 and 2014, respectively. Lee Ranch is a non-union surface mine that uses a combination of dragline and truck-and-shovel mining techniques and ships coal to its customers via the Burlington Northern Santa Fe Railway.
Colorado Operations
We control approximately 0.2 billion tons of proven and probable coal reserves and currently have two mines in the Colorado Region. Our Twentymile underground mine is managed by our Twentymile Coal Company subsidiary. Our Seneca surface mine is managed by our Seneca Coal Company subsidiary and ceased mining operations at the end of 2005.

Twentymile Mine

The Twentymile Mine is located in Routt County, Colorado. This mine uses both longwall and continuous mining equipment. Our Twentymile Mine is non-union and has perennially been one of the largest and most productive underground mines in the United States. The coal quality is high, with less than 15% requiring washing. Approximately 90% of all coal shipped is loaded on the Union Pacific railroad; the remainder is hauled by truck.

Seneca Mine

The Seneca Mine near Hayden, Colorado shipped 1.1 million tons of compliance coal during 2005, operating with two draglines in two separate mining areas. The mine’s coal was hauled by truck to the nearby Hayden Generating Station, operated by the Public Service of Colorado, under a coal supply agreement that extends until 2011. This mine has exhausted its economically recoverable reserves and ceased mining operations at the end of 2005. Reclamation of the final cuts is underway. Grading and re-soiling are anticipated to be complete by the end of 2006. Our Twentymile Mine now supplies the Hayden Generating Station. The Seneca mine closure is not expected to have a material adverse effect on our financial condition, results of operations or cash flows. Hourly workers at Seneca are members of the UMWA.
Appalachia/ Highland Operations
The Appalachia/ Highland Operations consist of a joint venture and five wholly-owned business units and related facilities in West Virginia and one business unit in western Kentucky.

Big Mountain Business Unit and Contract Mines

The Big Mountain Business Unit is based near Prenter, West Virginia. This business unit’s primary source of coal is from the Big Mountain No. 16 operation. In addition, there is contract mine production (about 40% of the total shipped) from coal reserves we control processed at the business unit’s preparation facility. Big Mountain No. 16 is an underground mine using continuous mining equipment. Processed coal is loaded on the CSX railroad. Hourly workers at the Big Mountain Business Unit are members of the UMWA.

Harris Business Unit

The Harris Business Unit is based near Bald Knob, West Virginia. The business unit’s primary source of coal is the Harris No. 1 Mine.

Hourly workers at the Harris Business Unit are members of the UMWA.

Rocklick Business Unit and Contract Mines

The Rocklick preparation plant, located near Wharton, West Virginia, processes metallurgical coal produced by the Harris Business Unit and steam coal produced from contract mining operations. This preparation plant shipped approximately 2.4 million tons of coal during 2005.

Federal Business Unit

The Federal Business Unit consists of the Federal No. 2 Mine, near Fairview, West Virginia, and uses longwall and continuous mining equipment to extract coal. Coal shipped from the Federal No. 2 Mine has sulfur content only slightly above that of medium sulfur coal and has above average heating content. As a result, it is more marketable than some other medium sulfur coals. The CSX and Norfolk Southern railroads jointly serve the mine.
