Warrior Met Coal is a leading producer and exporter of metallurgical coal for the global steel industry from underground mines located in Brookwood, Alabama, southwest of Birmingham and near Tuscaloosa. These underground coal mines are 1,400 to 2,100 feet underground, making them some of the deepest vertical shaft coal mines in North America. Metallurgical coal mined from the Blue Creek coal seam contains very low sulfur and has strong coking properties, making it ideally suited for steel makers. Warrior Met Coal’s cost-efficient operations serve markets in the United States, Europe, Asia, and South America via convenient barge and rail access to the Port of Mobile. The company currently has the operational capacity to mine about eight million tons of coal per year from more than 300 million tons of recoverable reserves.
Our operations also extract methane gas from the Blue Creek coal seam. Warrior Met Coal’s gas division represents one of the most extensive and comprehensive commercial programs for coal seam degasification in the country, producing approximately 28 million cubic feet of gas daily from 1748 gas wells.
Because it is a natural resources production company, Warrior Met Coal is aware of the impact its activities could potentially have on air, land, and water resources. We are committed to protecting these environmental resources by controlling, preventing, or eliminating pollution from our operations while supporting sustainable economic development.
Operating safely is a high priority for Warrior Met Coal. We are committed to providing a safe and healthy workplace for all employees and the continued enhancement of a safety culture ensuring that all employees return home safely to their families every day.
