Dave, Will not sell out what would he do for fun no one to yell at no one to watch him almost fall off a high wall no more big blasts no more phone calls al day no radio !!!!! get really no way dave would pay 200 million just to do all this stuff its his jolly. he is one of the last guys around that cares for perry cty. and his workers and as soon as you say something about pay remember he is still working and paying and has not laid off or laid down.
Dave Duff is possible crazy but thats a small issue this guy deserve respect from everyone that takes his check home. and respect for the excellent job he does mining from beginning to reclaimed end. GOOD JOB DAVE DUFF and i have never meet the man.

No truth to this at all, and if Dave ever finds out who is spreading these lies it will not be good for them. The Duff's have flooded Hazard with good paying jobs, and are always making very large donations to help out community. People should find someone else to say bad things about, I can guarantee you, Pine Branch Coal has YEARS of contracts to sell coal, and permits to mine with YEARS until maturity. They have no reason to sell cause the place is making BANK!. Finally if it ever came to the point that Dave wants out of the business he would close the doors and shut down before he would sell his dads company. The place means the world to him and his family.

Your an idiot. They are definitely for sale. They have had folks come in and look in the past and just never could meet at the right number. And what exactly does having plenty contracts and permits have to do with them not selling? Thats about the only way it would sell. They do have 1 pretty good contract right now and permits that will carry them for a while. The problem they will run into first will be COE and DOW permit needs. This potential purchase is not a lie. The problem is when it gets far enough along in the process where they actually are coming on site to physically take a look it gets impossible to keep a secret. If he was a true businessman and not a total control freak he would have already done the right thing and talked to his management team.

If they agree on dollar amount and there arent any huge skeletons in the closet I can promise you it will be a done deal. Like I said, if another group could have agreed to a dollar amount it would have happened a while back.

Mitch Potter is in town and Pine Branch is going down. You people that think Dave Duff doesn't have a price are crazy. You better be getting your drug cleanout kits.
