The Elk Creek Coal Company Preparation Plant was located in Emmett, West Virginia. Emmett was once a coal camp community owned by the Elk Creek Coal Company, later purchased by the Guyan Eagle Coal Company.1 Much of the town was demolished to make way for a mountaintop mining site.
The preparation plant was owned by the Island Creek Coal Company to process coal that came out of their No. 10 mine.1 CONSOL purchased it years later and renamed it to the Elk Creek facility and was active until 1997 when it was put into idled status. The facility has since been demolished.
