Maple Coal operations are located 32 kilometres east of Charleston, West Virginia. The operations include the Eagle underground mine, which produces a premium high volatile metallurgical coal for US domestic and export steel making markets, and the Sycamore open cut mine which produces thermal coal for power generation in the US eastern seaboard. The Eagle mine produced approximately 400,000 tonnes in 2010 with the company planning to increase that to 1.0 million tonnes in 2012.[1]

Maple Coal is owned by Western Coal, a subsidiary of Walter Energy, a Vancouver, Canada headquartered company.
