About Us

BLACK DIAMOND MINING

Black Diamond’s resource is 973Mt of high rank anthracite which has wide domestic and industrial use throughout the United Kingdom and Europe given its high carbon content and calorific value. The anthracite resource can be readily exploited, as the working licences and infrastructure are already in place. Black Diamond is well placed to become the only producer of anthracite in Europe by 2018.
