American Resources Corporation Reduces Reclamation Bonding Liability Through Disposition of Non-Core Permits and Reclamation Efforts

American Resources Corporation (NASDAQ: AREC), a supplier of raw materials to the rapidly growing global infrastructure marketplace, with a primary focus on the extraction, processing, transportation and selling of metallurgical coal to the steel industry, announced today that it has completed the transfer and disposition of two non-core permits to a third party, resulting in the reduction of reclamation bonding liability held by the company by approximately $2.86 million. Along with additional recent reclamation efforts, the company has also reduced its reclamation bonds by approximately $176,300 for a total reduction of $3.04 million. The reduction in reclamation bonding reduces the bonding of the company's subsidiary, Knott County Coal, by approximately 34.5% from approximately $8.8 million in bonds to $5.8 million in bonds, and reduces the bonding overall at the company by approximately 11.4%, thereby reducing liabilities on the balance sheet and saving the company money in bonding fees, holding costs, and future reclamation costs.
A sat office that is considered non-center to the organization's tasks, the Raven planning plant and related impoundment was considered geologically excess to the organization's current Supreme Energy arrangement plant and impoundment possessed by the organization's auxiliary, Knott County Coal LLC, and got to just higher sulfur warm coal. Preceding its mien, the Raven plant was the main rented planning office of the organization, rather than it's other five completely possessed arrangement plants. The grants to the Raven office, which is claimed by an outsider and was rented by the organization, were gained as a feature of the organization's procurement of Knott County Coal (once in the past known as ICG Knott County).
''The Raven facility was never present in any of our forecasted growth plans. Any future coal production in this area will be brought back to our owned facilities at either Deane Mining or Knott County Coal, making the disposition of the facility strategic and a good cost-savings measure for the company'', stated Kirk Taylor, Chief Financial Officer of American Resources Corporation. ''Our strategy remains focused on targeting premium quality coals predominantly used in the steel-making sector, such as coking coal and pulverized injection coal. With this divestment, we can continue to reduce non-core holding costs and liabilities.''
American Resources Corporation continues to focus on its growth objective by efficiently leveraging its large number of core mining permits and through identifying strategic, supplemental acquisitions and continuing to consolidate quality coal assets for future growth and production. The company is committed to being one of the lowest cost operators in CAPP and throughout all its coal mining, processing, and transportation operations.
