GCC Energy, owns and operates the King II Coal Mine in southwestern Colorado. Located approximately 10 miles southwest of Hesperus, CO the King II Coal Mine is a dry, underground mine that proudly carries on as part of the historic tradition of over a century of agriculture and coal mining in the Hay Gulch area. The mine supplies low-ash, low mercury super-compliant, bituminous coal to our domestic and international customers predominantly for the purpose of manufacturing cement and concrete, but also to power the famous Durango & Silverton Narrow Gauge Railroad located in Durango, CO.
The mine employs 120 people who live primarily in La Plata and Montezuma counties and supports hundreds of additional jobs with local vendors throughout the region. We are proud of our employees and take great pride in making sure that safety is a core value. The King II Coal Mine has won numerous awards for mine rescue team competitions and has received Rocky Mountain Coal Mining Institute Safety Awards three out of the last four years. At the King II Coal Mine we teach “safety as a value.”
