COMPLIANCE & OVERSIGHT

The Surface Mining Control and Reclamation Act (SMCRA) is the primary environmental law governing coal mining and reclamation activities. This law requires that all coal mining related land disturbances should be minimized while maximizing coal recovery. The Federal Office of Surface mining (OSM) has an oversight role in the states in which we operate, with each state having their own regulatory program.

 

In West Virginia

The West Virginia Department of Environmental Protection (WVDEP) regulates our coal mining and reclamation operations. We are a member of the WV Coal Association and actively participate on the Environmental and Technical Committee.

 

In Pennsylvania

The PA Department of Environmental Protection regulates our PA operations. We are active members of the PA Coal Association.   

 

In Kentucky

We are regulated by the KY Department of Natural Resources, and we are active members of the KY Coal Association.

 

In Virginia

We are regulated by the VA Division of Mined Land Reclamation (VADMLR). We are active members of the Virginia Coal Association and the Virginia Mining Association.

 

We are also a very active member of the National Mining Association and a participant on the Environmental Committee.
