Freedom Energy, Liberty Land, and Kentucky River Properties have holdings in the Illinois Basin totaling over 100,000 acres of surface, mineral, oil & gas, and fee properties. The properties are scattered around southern Indiana, southern Illinois, and western Kentucky. These properties are managed out of the Hazard office. Existing known coal resources exceed 400 million tons of potentially recoverable coal available for development. Although some opportunities exist for surface mine development, most the reserves are better suited for underground extraction operations. With ample access to both rail and river markets, these coal resources are well positioned to provide the fuel for growth and progress anywhere in the world.
