How we do
Business.

As our company timeline shows, it wasn't that long ago that we were a one-mine operation. Through those early, lean years, our culture began to take shape. And really, they're the values that have always been what coal mining is all about - always trying to do the best job, as safely and efficiently as possible.

We've grown a lot in the last 20 years, and the reason is simple. We put our focus on hiring great people, identifying reserves, capturing market share, and mining safely and productively.

We focus on our employees because they are the spirit that carries us forward into the future. Mining, processing and transportation is tough work. Their desire to do a great job and give each day their best effort separates our company from our competition - and has allowed us to grow.

The old-fashioned American work ethic and ingenuity that has driven our country over generations is what drives us today. And it'll be the driving force of our future as well. We are thankful for our employees' many contributions and efforts that result in the shared success of all of us at Rosebud Mining Company for many years to come.
