Our Expertise

Draglines + Electric Shovels

We currently operate and maintain more than 50 draglines throughout the United States, from 7 cubic-yard diesel draglines to 124 cubic-yard electric draglines. Our experience and expertise allow us to deliver outstanding productivity.

Surface Miners

Surface miners reduce operating costs, increase recovery in areas with blasting restrictions, and provide unique options for blending your material. Contact us to see how surface miners can add value to your operations.

Loading + Hauling

Successful load and haul operations are about being efficient and productive. We design load and haul operations to deliver on both, and our expert crews make it happen.

Coal Handling

Mining operations and customer product specifications can produce some complicated requirements for coal handling. We have the experience and connections to operate and maintain crushing and conveying systems while keeping your costs low and production levels on plan.

Drilling + Blasting

We can design blast patterns and timing sequences that produce properly fragmented material in a cost-effective manner while working with permitting requirements and local communities.
