Surface Coal Mining

Hargreaves are one of the largest remaining developers and operators of surface mines in the UK

After the acquisition of SRG and ATH in 2012, Hargreaves became one of the largest remaining coal operators in the UK, working at sites primarily across Scotland.

A lot of these sites had been abandoned by previous operators, leaving behind large areas of potentially unsafe dereliction.

Hargreaves has been working with key stakeholders to develope creative and innovative solutions to these legacy problems, including the funding of restoration through mining activity.

Working to the highest health, safety and environmental levels, Hargreaves takes its responsibilities very seriously and is comitted to coal and the continuing employment of highly skilled and experienced operators.
