Argo Surety has underwritten coal reclamation and self-insured workers’ compensation bonds since its inception. We bond reclamation of both underground and surface mines.
Given the long-term nature of both reclamation and SIWC, our coal appetite is for large, well-established and financially sound companies. They are primarily involved in surface mining, and with adequate coal reserves demonstrated through third-party reserve reports. We seek companies with a good track record in the industry, a strong safety and compliance record, and solid relationships with federal and state authorities.
