At Coronado Coal, we believe in the importance of enriching the communities in which we operate. Not only do we aim to be a safe, reliable, environmentally conscious employer of choice in each of these communities, we also seek to give back in meaningful ways, from ongoing support of local charities and environmental projects to sponsoring and conducting educational programs. We also encourage our employees and executives to regularly participate in local activities and events to ensure our focus on giving back extends throughout our organization.

Recent examples of Coronado’s partnership with our local communities include:

  • Donating equipment to local schools
  • Conducting and sponsoring educational programs for local school children
  • Providing internships for college students from local communities
  • Assisting with rebuilding efforts following natural disasters/floods, including repaving roads and repairing buildings and homes
  • Donating a portion of site profits to local charities and causes, including local environmental and stream restoration organizations
  • Contributing food and relief funds to communities in need
  • Sponsoring local Boy Scout troops
  • Participating in the National Boy Scout Jamboree and teaching mining merit badge classes

In 2016, a devastating tornado and torrential rains caused significant flood damage in Greenbrier County, West Virginia. In the immediate aftermath, Coronado was there to assist with disaster relief to the local community.

We deployed our equipment and manpower, working for a week to repair local roads and houses.
