Publicly Traded Coal Mining Companies Listed on Major U.S. Exchanges

Most of the publicly traded coal mining companies listed on U.S. major exchanges are based in the United States. These companies are engaged in a variety of coal mining and marketing activities but there are some companies that focus on specific types of coals. The two most common are thermal and metallurgical coal.

Thermal coal’s primary use is to produce electricity and is used by power plants or industrial customers in need of electrical power (for example chemical industries). Thermal coal is also known as steaming coal. Metallurgical coal is also known as coking coal as it is used in the creation of coke. Coke is a fuel with relatively few impurities and is used in the iron and steel-making process.
