Developing the Illinois Basin

Demand for coal produced in the Illinois Basin (ILB) is expected to grow at a rate faster than overall U.S. coal demand. Sunrise Coal is focused on developing reserves in the ILB.


A Good Neighbor

Sunrise is committed to working closely with our landowner partners to safely remove coal, while continually giving back to the communities in which we work and live.
