About Company


River Hill Coal is a Pennsylvania-based coal exploration and development company engaged in surface mining and the preparation and sale of bituminous metallurgical coal (coking coal), bituminous steam coal and foundry grade metallurgical coal. Environmentally conscious, River Hill re-mines abandoned mines, restores land to its original habitat, reintroduces wildlife and incorporates solar power and biofuels in the production process. Since 1945, River Hill Coal has been a family owned and operated business

River Hill Coal produces two types of coal: bituminous metallurgical coal that is used to make coke, an essential ingredient in the steel- making process, and bituminous steam coal that is used in power plants to generate electricity.

River Hill Coal Company has the distinction of being one of the most eco-friendly and safe coal mining operations in the United States. River Hill is also the only privately held coal company (S Corp) in the world actively implementing carbon reducing technologies.


River Hill Coal Company was started in the late 1940's as a small underground coal mining operation, owned by the Rydberg family. River Hill began surface mining in the late 1950's. In 1975, Tosco Oil Corporation purchased the mine from the Rydberg family, along with other nearby coal companies. Tosco constructed a coal preparation plant on the site in order to produce and sell metallurgical grade coal. The preparation plant was completed in 1976. Tosco abandoned their interest to Continental Bank of Illinois, who subsequently sold it back to the grandchildren of the Rydberg's in 1982.

Harry James Hanchar purchased all of the stock of River Hill Coal Company and AME Enterprises in November 1987. River Hill and AME were merged in 1989. At that time the primary product for River Hill was 300,000 to 400,000 tons of steam coal. This continued until 2005 when worldwide demand for metallurgical coal increased. River Hill was able to ship some quantities of metallurgical coal by selective mining. In 2007, River Hill began major renovations to the Tosco coal preparation plan, adding to the existing structure and building a clean coal circuit. These modifications and additions were completed in October of 2008. River Hill can now produce at least 20,000 tonnes per month of mid vol -8 ash, -1% sulfur coal metallurgical coal. This coal is some of the strongest quality coking coal in the world and is currently sold to domestic and foreign markets.

River Hill Coal Company has been under current management for twenty plus years and has been in business for over sixty-three years. During the current management, River Hill has drastically improved the environment by cleaning up old mining sites and has reintroduced wildlife, such as elk and trout, into these reclaimed areas.
