Our Mines


Arch Coal has substantial production at mines served by each of the nation’s major railroads. In addition, many of Arch’s mines have cost-competitive access to the inland waterways system. Arch Coal Terminal is a company-owned dock on the Big Sandy River that enhances the company’s portfolio of transportation options.
Arch Coal also can export coal from the east, west and gulf coasts. Coal moving to the European marketplace also can be stored and transloaded cost-effectively through Dominion Terminal Associates (DTA) located in Newport News, Va.
