The construction of Woodhouse Colliery will require an extensive and varied supply chain, across a wide range of sectors, including construction, catering, mine and office supplies, transportation and site maintenance. We have already started to engage with local and national businesses and share with them the wide range of potential opportunities available.
The positive impact on the local community will begin to be felt far before the first coal is extracted. Once operational, there are clear benefits to be felt from a modern mine which will also impact positively on the local community and the wider UK economy.
Our highly experienced management team has identified a long-term demand for our specific metallurgical coal in the UK and Europe. Woodhouse Colliery has all the attributes to be a very successful mine, with the area being known to offer extensive deposits of high-quality metallurgical coal, good transportation links, local mining experience, a wide range of local employment options and strong community support.
