Blackhawk Mining, LLC was formed in 2010 with the acquisition of the Spurlock Complex in Floyd County, Kentucky. In its first year of full operation, the company produced just over 1 million tons of coal. From its humble beginnings, the company has grown rapidly over the last several years to become a regional leader in coal mining and marketing. Today, Blackhawk Mining operates nine mining complexes across three states with approximately 2,300 employees.
