Sycamore 2 Mine is operated by Wolf Run Mining Company, a subsidiary of International Coal Group (ICG), LLC, and is located near Jarvisville, Harrison County, West Virginia. The mine is accessed by three drift openings, into the Pittsburgh No. 8 coal seam, which averages 65 inches in height. The mine was placed in active status on July 5, 2005, and averaged 1,200 tons of coal per day in 2006.

Judge rules ICG owes Allegheny $104 million

On May 2, 2011, a trial court judge held that ICG’s Wolf Run subsidiary breached its coal supply agreement with Allegheny Energy and is liable for past and future damages and interest in the total amount of $104 million. Allegheny, the sole customer of coal produced at Wolf Run’s Sycamore 2 Mine, filed a lawsuit in 2006 claiming that Wolf Run breached a coal supply contract when it declared "force majeure" upon temporarily idling the mine in the third quarter of that year, and failing to ship thereafter the volumes referenced in the contract.[1]
