They are the largest and lowest cost producers of thermal coal in the Illinois Basin and Northern Appalachia US coal basins as well as significant suppliers in the Cesar basin in Colombia and the Unita basin in the US. They operate in total 17 underground longwall mining units and three continuous mining operations across the United States and two open pit mines in Colombia.
In June 2015, Javelin entered into a long term domestic advisory and export marketing agreement with Murray Energy providing Javelin with unique access to various mines, coals, logistics and customers. Working with Murray Energy enables us to develop flexible and dynamic fuel supply solutions for our clients' needs both in the United States as well as internationally. Murray Energy has been very outspoken and forthcoming with praises when it comes to their investment in Javelin.
