Kopper Glo has six surface projects and five underground projects with an aggregate area of up to approximately 20,104 acres located in Claiborne and Campbell counties in Tenn. The Double Mountain Deep mine is the company’s principal producing mine and the company also conducts surface mining and highwall mining operations at the Log Mountain Mine and the Davis Creek Mine. The Log Mountain and Davis Creek operating surface mines and the Double Mountain Deep Mine have a combined current annualized production rate of approximately 1,132,000 clean tons of coal.

Kopper Glo also has a number of surface and underground possible projects at various stages of development, all of which will require various permits before mining operations could commence. Kopper Glo owns a coal preparation plant which has a capacity of 350 tons per hour of raw coal and is located on a Norfolk Southern rail line (with dual NS and CSX Corp. load-out capability) in Claiborne County. Kopper Glo’s mines, the prep plant and Kopper Glo’s refuse site are all located in close proximity providing for efficient operations.
