MINING Operations


Ramaco is an operator, developer, and producer of high-quality, low-cost metallurgical coal in central and southern West Virginia and southwestern Virginia.

Safety is our top overriding priority at every Ramaco facility. We are proud to have been regularly honored by state and federal regulators, agencies, and mining associations for operational excellence and our commitment to the well-being of our workforce. This recognition has included three Sentinel of Safety Awards — the nation’s top honor for mine safety — as well as recognition from the West Virginia Coal Association, the West Virginia Office of Miner’s Health, Safety and Training and more.

Ramaco exports our premium metallurgic products to customers in approximately 20 countries across the world, as well as to North American customers.
