REGIONAL FOCUS

Nearly all of Knight Hawk Coal's facilities are located within a 35 mile radius of where Perry, Jackson, and Randolph counties meet in Southern Illinois. This provides a compact footprint but with the versatility and balance of differing operations whether they are underground or surface mines. This versatility is further enhanced by the ability to process coal at three different plants. All of this is supported by Knight Hawk's transportation options including its Lone Eagle Dock on the Mississippi River, customer-direct trucking, and Union Pacific and Canadian National rail options. With the current structure, Knight Hawk has the capacity to produce and deliver up to 6.5 million tons of high quality, low chlorine Illinois Basin coal per year and Knight Hawk's proven reserves provide for a mining life of more than 25 years.
