Blackhawk Mining, LLC was formed in 2010 and has grown to become a national leader in the production and sale of metallurgical coal, a critical ingredient in the production of steel. Blackhawk sells metallurgical coal to steel producers and industrial end users in the United States and three other continents. Every building, car, appliance and other steel-produced product is reliant on coal. The strong demand for this scarce resource allows Blackhawk to provide employees with dynamic careers backed by competitive compensation and benefits. Our company also produces thermal coal to serve the energy needs of the power generation industry.
Our mission is to operate in accordance with our five core pillars, with safety at the forefront. Today, Blackhawk Mining operates eight mining complexes in two states with approximately 2,000 employees. We pride ourselves on our commitment to safety, employee success and community engagement.
We also place the highest priority on delivering customer satisfaction. We build strong, long-term relationships with our customers by providing them with quality products and excellent, timely service, including global distribution. Our business operations will be conducted honestly, with the highest level of integrity and in compliance with applicable laws and regulations in the locations in which we operate.
