I stopped into a local restruant in Ohio County and overheard a gentleman say: " Armstrong Coal has purchased all of Patriot's stock & holdings in Western Kentucky"

According to this gentleman. Originally it was rumored for Patriot to assume control of Armstrong's operation but thats not the case.

Armstrong isn't and I know that for a fact because the COO (Chief Operating Officer) of the company is from Muhlenberg County and was a River Queen employee alongside my dad for a long time. The folks at the Peabody Office in Evansville certainly do not think of him highly now that he is with Armstrong. The owner, Mr. Armstrong, was a highly successful pharmaceutical man when he got into coal mining with a couple of other investors not related with Peabody. Only thing Armstrong does is comes in and either buys, or leases, Peabody's old reserves and digs the coal Peabody is afraid to come back and get. I don't work for Armstrong, nor do I have family with them, as a matter of fact my family is a Peabody family from top to bottom! But you should be glad Armstrong is investing the money they are because Peabody sure wouldn't today.

Part of that is because the county has the programs in place to train the workforce in mining, plus it still has a large base of unemployed coal miners. You've also got to think that most of the folks running Armstrong now are former Peabody Coal Company guys and Muhlenberg (not "Methenberg") County was Peabody's bread and butter during the booms.

There may have been a lot of coal miners in methenberg county . they can work in methenberg county if they want . We need jobs here in ohio county just as much as the others. Im just as qualified as the next to work also. My family also worked for peabody . My dad worked 41 years at ken surface, my brotherinlaws both worked and one still works for peabody in union county. its just not fair for them to import miners from distant areas when there have plenty of able body's ready to work. They ran add's in the papers saying , were hiring . They hire a few from centertown ,which is good . Methenberg has mines over there for there county .

I got hired on at the Prep plant and at the time I did not know anyone affiliated with Armstrong Coal. I turned in an app just like everyone else. I also think the hiring is one sided for Muhl. and Hopkins Co. areas mainly for the pit areas.

I'm sure the area that was shot wasn't that big, and they didn't lose that much coal, I'm not sure I understand why Peabody would shoot then not strip it, I know some coal in that area has mud seams in it and they do shoot it, spoil it, and keep going. Probably depends on if they had a contract for raw coal or washed. That would be my guess.

In 2009 and 2010, Armstrong Energy borrowed an aggregate principal amount of $44.1 million from Armstrong Resource Partners, and the proceeds of those loans were used to satisfy various installment payments required by the promissory notes that were delivered in connection with the acquisition of our coal reserves. Under the terms of these borrowings, Armstrong Resource Partners had the option to acquire interests in coal reserves then held by Armstrong Energy in Muhlenberg and Ohio Counties in satisfaction of the loans it had made to Armstrong Energy. On February 9, 2011, Armstrong Resource Partners exercised this option. In connection with that exercise, Armstrong Resource Partners paid Armstrong Energy an additional $5.0 million in cash and agreed to offset $12.0 million in accrued advance royalty payments owed by Armstrong Energy to Armstrong Resource Partners, relating to the lease of the Elk Creek Reserves, to acquire an additional partial undivided interest in certain of the coal reserves held by Armstrong Energy in Muhlenberg and Ohio Counties at fair market value. Through these transactions, Armstrong Resource Partners acquired a 39.45% undivided interest as a joint tenant in common with Armstrong Energy in the majority of our coal reserves, excluding the Union/Webster Counties reserves. The aggregate amount paid by Armstrong Resource Partners to acquire its interest in these reserves was the equivalent of approximately $69.5 million.
