We are an administrator and designer of excellent, minimal effort metallurgical coal in focal and southern West Virginia, southwestern Virginia, and southwestern Pennsylvania. We have an improvement arrangement of four seemingly perpetual tasks: Elk Creek, Berwind, RAM Mine and Knox Creek.
We accept every one of these tasks has geologic and calculated preferences that will make our coal among the most minimal conveyed cost U.S. household metallurgical coal to a dominant part of our local objective client base, U.S.- based impact heater steel factories and U.S.- based coke plants, just as universal metallurgical coal shoppers.
We started business creation of metallurgical coal in the main quarter of 2017. Our generation for 2017 totaled 548,000 clean huge amounts of metallurgical coal. Generation for 2018 will outpace 2017 and are required to proceed with an enduring increment through 2022. Furthermore, we envision that the coincidental creation of warm coal will produce up to 10% of our tons sold in any generation year, and we may consider expanding our warm coal activities later on.
We accept that we will almost certainly exploit late increments in U.S. what’s more, worldwide benchmark metallurgical coal costs and expect to artfully build the measure of our anticipated generation that is coordinated to the fare market to catch good differentials among residential and worldwide benchmark costs.
