Safety & Environmental

We are highly focused on the safety of our coal operations and work diligently to meet or exceed all safety and environmental regulations required by state and federal laws. For the year ended December 31, 2016, our average MSHA violations per inspection day was 0.25 as compared to the most recent national average of 0.67 violations per inspection day as reported by MSHA, or 62.7% below this national average. We believe our ability to minimize environmental and mine health and safety violations will increase our operating efficiency and maintain strong employee morale.
