The Project

The New Crofton Co-op Colliery project is in the process of opening a new drift coal mine just to the south of New Crofton. The mine is owned and operated by a workers Co-operative, New Crofton Co-op Colliery Limited.

Given the challenging state of the UK coal market at the moment we have decided to delay driving the drifts until Summer 2016, but have now begun surface site preparation work.
