West Cumbria Mining Ltd is a private company that is looking to provide high quality metallurgical coal mined in the UK, near Whitehaven in West Cumbria, to supply the steel industry at home and overseas.
Currently we have a series of licences which collectively cover an area of approximately 200km2 off the coast at Whitehaven. Based on existing data, we believe there are over 750 million tonnes of steel-making coal resources across the area. The company is aiming to develop a mine that will produce two to three million tonnes of hard metallurgical coal a year.
We are looking to support the people and environment local to the mine sites as the area evolves into a modern mining community which can be proud of its role in producing quality metallurgical coal for the UK and European steel industry.
