 KERR-MCGEE'S JACOBS RANCH MINE SETS SAFETY, PRODUCTIVITY RECORDS
 OKLAHOMA CITY, Jan. 7 /PRNewswire/ -- Jacobs Ranch Mine, located in Wyoming's coal-rich Powder River Basin, ended l99l operating one calendar year (approximately 78O,OOO employee-hours) without a lost- time accident. The 367 employees at the mine also set an annual production record by mining and shipping l7.8 million tons of coal, l.l million tons more than the previous record set in l99O. A productivity record for the month of December was set with shipment of l.7 million tons.
 "We are very proud of our safety-conscious employees at Jacobs Ranch Mine," said Robert C. Scharp, Kerr-McGee Coal president. "They have demonstrated 'round-the-clock' commitment to safety while setting records in production."
 Although mine employees have worked since April l99O without a lost-time accident, the calendar-year accomplishment qualifies the mine as a candidate for the Sentinels of Safety Award. The award, established in l925, is co-sponsored by the Mine Safety and Health Administration and the American Mining Congress. It annually recognizes the safest mines in the industry.
 Jacobs Ranch is the nation's second-largest coal mine. In l99l it shipped its low-sulfur coal to eight utilities in the United States and made export shipments to Spain.
