Hallador Energy Company (HNRG) is the parent company of Sunrise Coal, LLC. Hallador, Spanish for “one who leads the way,” is a fitting name for a company whose forward-looking leaders recognized that the Illinois Basin (ILB) was on the verge of rapid expansion. Hallador took the opportunity to transition from the California oil business to ILB coal mining with the purchase of Sunrise Coal in 2006.
After joining the NASDAQ in May 2010 under the symbol HNRG, Hallador became the only publicly-traded company that produces coal solely in the Illinois Basin. Solid experience combined with an aggressive vision for the future makes Sunrise Coal the most efficient coal producer in the ILB.
