Cason J. Callaway brings coal

The Cason J. Callaway came into port late Monday afternoon (pictured) to discharge a cargo of coal at the Graymont Superior dock, formerly known as Cutler-Magner. The coal was loaded in Ashtabula and will be used to heat several of their kilns that are used to create lime from limestone, a cargo that is often discharged at the dock. Some of their kilns run with eastern coal, the coal the Callaway is discharging on this trip, while the rest of their kilns use western coal brought over from Midwest Energy Resources also in Superior. The Callaway will then load taconite at both the Duluth and Two Harbors CN docks, taking that cargo to Conneaut. Photo taken on June 22, 2009
