Walter Minerals

Swann’s Crossing surface mine produces hard coking and thermal coal at this location near Brookwood, Alabama.

Walter Minerals currently operate three surface mines in Alabama. The Choctaw Mine is located near Parrish in Walker County, Alabama and produces thermal and hard coking coal. The mine has an onsite rail facility serviced by Norfolk Southern rail. Access to Highway 269 provides delivery access to local customers via truck. The Reid School Mine is located in Blount County, Alabama and primarily produces hard coking coal. Access to Highway 79 provides delivery to local customers via truck. Hard coking coal mined at Reid School Mine is primarily sold to our Coke plant and underground mining operations for resale. The Swann’s Crossing Mine is located in Tuscaloosa County near Brookwood, Alabama and produces both hard coking and thermal coal. The mine has access to our barge load-out facility on the Black Warrior River.

We also own other surface mine coal reserves including the Flat Top surface mine that is a thermal mine and is ready for operation once market conditions permit. This mine is located in Adamsville, Alabama near Highway 78 and expectations are that any coal produced would be delivered to local customers via truck.

Barges are loaded with Blue Creek coal at our load-out facility on the Black Warrior River on their way to the Port of Mobile. The barge loading facility is owned and operated by Walter Minerals.
