Mineweb reported that it may be the perfect time for investors to invest in the estimated $15 billion of coal mines up for grabs.

As quoted in the market news,

Coal has lost more than half its value in the past four years. Expanding production and an economic slowdown in China, the largest market for the fuel, created a supply glut. Now Glencore Plc, the world’s biggest shipper of power-station coal, is cutting supply, with analysts projecting price gains by next year through 2018.

Viktor Tanevski, a coal analyst at Wood Mackenzie Ltd., stated:
