Mining Operations

Luminant is the No. 1 lignite coal mining operation in Texas. We produce about 33 million tons annually to help meet the fuel needs of our coal generation plants in locations across Texas. But our job doesn’t stop once the lignite has been mined. For the past 40 years, and before state or federal laws even required post-mining reclamation, we have set the standard in responsible land reclamation and management at our sites, working hard to return mined lands to their previous condition, if not better.

Modern surface-mining operations require mechanical and technical aptitude. If you like the idea of running some of the largest equipment in the industry and being outdoors, this is the area for you. Jobs range from degreed professional and management to technical and skilled labor positions. Here are some of the career options at our mining operations.

  • Trade and skilled labor
  • Maintenance and mechanical specialists
  • Dragline and equipment operators
  • Engineers (environmental, geology, geosciences, mechanical, mining, quality, safety)
  • Management and administration positions
