OPERATIONS - Blue Diamond

The Blue Diamond complex is located in Leslie, Perry and Letcher counties in eastern Kentucky. We use room and pillar mining for our underground mines and we use the contour method for our surface mine. We mine the Hazard #4 and Elkhorn #3 seams of coal at this complex. Coal is processed at our preparation plant, and loaded into railcars via an integrated four-hour unit train loadout on the CSX railroad.
