ALBERTA — The global downturn in steel production and an uncertain outlook for metallurgical coal have forced Grande Cache Coal Corp. of Calgary to cut production by 25% for the next six months. The move will result in the layoffs of 100 employees and contractors.

 

Grande Cache intends to preserve its cash balance of $88 million (and no debt) at the end of 2008. The company says it will concentrate of reducing costs at existing mines and curtail non-essential expenditures. The company has deferred the delivery dates of new mining equipment intended to increase production and for the development of the No.8 surface mine.
