CURRENT Western Kentucky Minerals MINING
Western Kentucky Minerals

The goal of coal mining is to economically remove coal from the ground and reclaim the land to a state as good as, if not better than, before. Since the 1880s, coal has been valued for its energy content and its reliability as a source of electricity production.

Western Kentucky Minerals is currently mining coal in the Knottsville Kentucky area. WKM uses advanced technology methods to minimize environmental impact during mining and to follow up mining with award-winning reclamation.

WKM supplies local power plants with coal that provides electricity to homes across Kentucky. This helps to ensure low electrical costs and to directly and indirectly provide jobs to our community.
