General Overview

Monterey Coal Company (MCC) is a division of Exxon Coal USA, Inc., and is a major coal producer in the Southern Illinois Basin. Formed in 1969, with initial coal production in 1970, MCC produces and processes close to three million tons annually of low- to mid-sulphur bituminous coal for use by electric utilities and industrial customers.

The mine is an underground operation extracting the Illinois No. 6 coal seam. Longwall mining technology was introduced in 1994, thus significantly increasing mining efficiency. Monterey Coal Company continuously strives to operate safely, efficiently, and deliver a high-quality product and service to its customers.
