Falkirk is a surface mining operation with some of the largest earth-moving equipment manufactured today. With an annual production of approximately 8 million tons of lignite coal, Falkirk provides fuel to generate low-cost electricity for 2/3 of rural Minnesota. With the help of Falkirk's 400 full-time employees, Falkirk stands as one of the safest mine operations in the coal industry. It is also through sound reclamation and environmental practices that Falkirk is able to return the land to a quality at or above pre-mining condition. In collaboration with power plant engineers, Falkirk continues to be a leader in developing clean, efficient and environmentally friendly coal technologies.
