Background

The Elk Creek Mine was located in parts of Logan, Mingo and Wyoming counties in West Virginia. It had been owned by CONSOL Energy but closed in the 1990s. Consol sold the idled mine to Ramaco Resources in 2012.[1]

According to Ramaco Resources, "When we acquired the Elk Creek project in 2012, we acquired rail access, permitted impoundment and coal refuse disposal facilities, as well as numerous reclaimed, but permitted, deep mines. The Elk Creek project began production in the fourth quarter of 2016. The project consists of 24 seams that are targeted for production. Ramaco Resources’ Elk Creek produced approximately 529,000 tons of high volatile A/B metallurgical coal in 2017 from two underground continuous miner room-and-pillar operations and one surface contour and highwall miner operation. A third underground continuous miner operation was started in 2018 and production is expected to be approximately 1.8 million tons in 2018."[2]

The mine has 96 million tonnes of recoverable reserves (60 proven, 36 probable), according to Ramaco Resources.[3]
