DENVER, Colo. (AP) Colorado coal production is taking a financial hit because of a soft market.

Production for the first six months of this year was down 20 percent compared with the same period last year.

The Denver Post reports five of Colorado's top nine operating mines reported production declines. Two mines that produced coal in 2012 aren't operating this year.
