Warrior is a large-scale, low-cost producer and exporter of premium quality met coals, also known as hard-coking coal (HCC), operating highly efficient longwall operations in its underground mines based in Alabama. The HCC that Warrior produces from the Blue Creek coal seam contains very low sulfur, has strong coking properties and is of similar quality to coal referred to as the premium HCC produced in Australia.
