Our Mission Statement

The Mission of the Kentucky Coal Association is to provide effective leadership for the coal industry and ultimately to enhance the ability of the Kentucky coal industry to compete in domestic and world coal markets.

Through a proactive approach in dealing with elected officials, state agencies, the media, and the general public, the association represents its member companies in innovative ways designed to educate the citizens of Kentucky about energy resources in general and coal in particular.

Coal touches every Kentuckian. Coal powers the state literally and figuratively. Coal provides 91% of the state's electrical power and mining is the state's largest industrial employer. The Kentucky Coal Association carries this message in a multifaceted program supported by coal producers, suppliers, transporters, utilities, financial institutions, consulting firms, and individuals.
