Knight Hawk is a medium-size producer with four operating mines and two projects all located in Illinois. The mines are a mix of surface mines utilising truck and shovel methods and underground mines using continuous miners. In 2021, Arch Resources transferred ownership of the Viper mine to Knight Hawk and sold its 49.5% stake in the company.
