Over $11.5B Worth of Blue Gem Coal Available On This Property


Elk Valley is located in Campbell County, Tennessee, 50 miles north of Knoxville and about 25 miles south of Williamsburg, KY. Here lies over 8,000 acres and one of the most lucrative listings in the state of Tennessee with an estimated $11.5 billion worth of Blue Gem Coal, making it one of the best natural resource investments on the East Coast.

Blue Gem Coal is a scarce substance and one of the most highly valued grades of coal in the world and is recognized among industrial users for its very low ash and sulfur contents and extremely high grade. It is found in only 3 states in the US and is used to make solar panels, cell phones, and other critical technologies and commodities used around the world by consumers and businesses alike.

Located in the heart of Elk Valley, this rare property for sale is an ideal investment opportunity that boasts the largest proven underground reserve of Blue Gem Coal in the Southern Appalachian Mountains. Elk Valley holds additional profitable natural resources on the other properties, such as timber, and natural gas. According to Hayden Outdoors broker and land specialist, Heath Thompson, “With Elk Valley having the largest proven underground reserve of Blue Gem Coal in the Southern Appalachian Mountains and the going rate of $350 per ton, the potential earnings from one natural resource is in the billions.”

Thompson explained more about the Tennessee land for sale, “Ketchen Holdings offers the investor or buyer a portfolio of properties with recoverable natural resources. There are 4 mineable tracts unique to this specific region of TN that offer over 33 million tons of coal including Blue Gem Coal, over 160+ million tons of Silica Sand, merchantable timber, numerous natural gas wells, and a major natural gas pipeline. The combined estimated value of Blue Gem Coal and Silica Sand is around $25 billion dollars. Making it extremely lucrative to the right investor. The royalties from natural gas and income from other revenue streams such as hunting leases or merchantable timber are an added benefit.”
