About Us

Who We Are:

U.S.-based Arch Coal is a leading coal producer and marketer, with 128 million tons of coal sold in 2015. We have two distinct but complementary lines of business. We produce high-quality metallurgical coal for sale in the global steel market, and we produce highly cost-competitive thermal coal, primarily in the PRB, for sale into the power generation market.

Arch is a well-positioned American coal company with large, modern, low-cost mining complexes and high-quality reserves in strategic U.S. coal supply basins. In total, we represent over 14% of America’s coal supply from our active mining complexes in Colorado, Illinois, Kentucky, West Virginia, Wyoming and Virginia.


Arch Coal is the leading producer of metallurgical coal and second largest producer of thermal coal in the United States.

We’re proud stewards of safety and the environment and have amassed dozens of national and state awards of excellence.

Arch Coal is traded on the New York Stock Exchange under the ticker symbol ARCH.
