Jim Thompson has analyzed and provided insight on coal markets for more than three decades,
as can be seen by the deep crevices in his face.
Thompson’s major area of expertise is the North American coal markets, though he is
conversant on worldwide market trends.
He has expertise both in thermal coal for electricity production and in metallurgical coal for use
in the steelmaking process.
Thompson has performed coal market consultations for coal producers and consumers as well
as for financial analysts and investors.
Regrets, he’s had a few, but then far too many to mention. In the next life, he hopes to be Tim
Whelan or a Whelan minion.
