Paramont Contura, LLC operates the mine, which is owned by Alpha Metallurgical Resources Inc. [1]

In 2015 a health and safety incident in the mine resulted in a fatality. David W Brummitte died after being trapped between fallen rib material and a shuttle car. The cause of the accident was ascribed to the failure of the mine operator, Paramont Contura, to properly support the mine ribs where the miner was working. [2]

Coal produced at the mine is consumed domestically as well as exported to markets in Europe and Asia.[3]
