I read that as we export nearly twice what we import -
And
That neither is very significant -
imports at about 2.5% of production
exports at 4.3%

Any idea what countries it is coming from?
Canada would make sense...
 but the poster indicated somewhere in South America....

afaik, most SA coal is coming from Venezuela.  I didn't say that your

still _do_ import it.  It's possible some comes from Canada (British
Columbia), but I doubt it.  Right now, nobody is digging coal in Nova
Scotia, which used to be our main source of supply.

Why did you bring it up if it isn't significant?
What IS the point?
