Our Approach to Responsibility

We are committed to doing business in a positive manner and aligning our efforts with our stakeholders’ needs and expectations. Every day, we work to continuously improve our reputation as an employer of choice, supplier of choice and operator of choice in our industry and in the regions in which we work. We believe safety, environmental stewardship, engaged employees and a community spirit are essential for the sustainability and success of our business. We share our success with our stakeholders and believe that we can accomplish more when we work together.

Commitment to Safety

The safety of our employees is our first priority. We are fully committed to the health and safety of our miners and have been since the company started in 2010. Our goal is for every miner to go home each day accident free.

Environmental Stewardship

Blackhawk’s mining operations are focused on minimizing any lasting impact to the environment. We employ a team of environmental professionals to oversee and prevent environmental issues before they arise, and we take a collective approach in pursuing our goal to create a new multifunctional landscape that benefits the future needs of the region once our operations are complete.

Supporting Our People

We recognize that our employees are our most valuable asset and deserve to be treated with respect and dignity. We provide employees with dynamic careers and competitive compensation and benefits – all backed by our safety-first culture.

Engaging Our Communities

We seek opportunities to engage with the local communities in which we operate and encourage our employees to take an active role in contributing to the betterment of our neighborhoods. We emphasize protecting the environment and giving back in order to enhance the quality of life in those communities where we live and operate.

Strong Corporate Governance

Our business is built on a strong foundation of corporate governance. Together, we are committed to upholding the highest standards of ethical behavior on behalf of our employees, our investor teams and those within the communities in which we serve.
