Foresight Energy, LP, Leading Producer of Thermal Coal
With more than 1.7 billion tons of coal reserves, Foresight Energy is among the largest holders of coal reserves in the United States, with resources that can support over 75 years of production at their current production level. They operate three mining companies in the Illinois Basin.
Two of those three mining complexes use highly efficient longwall mining systems. This highly productive mining method, coupled with the favorable geology of our coal, has resulted in their mines being among the safest, most effective, and lowest cost underground coal mines in the United States.
