West Cumbria Mining Ltd (WCM) is a privately owned UK company focussed on producing high quality metallurgical coal, mined near Whitehaven in West Cumbria, to supply the steel industry at home and in Europe.

WCM holds a series of licences which collectively cover an area of approximately 200 km2 off the coast at Whitehaven. Based on existing data, we have estimated that there are over 750 million tonnes of steel-making coal resources across the licence area. We are working to build a mine that will produce between two and three million tonnes of high quality, specialist, hard metallurgical coal per annum.

WCM is looking to support the people and environment local to the mine site as the area evolves into a modern mining community which can be proud of its role in producing high quality metallurgical coal for the UK and European steel industry, an EU classified critical raw material.
