American Resources Corporation’s Carnegie 1 Mine Set to Double Metallurgical Carbon Production with Development of Bridge Section

Bridge section, upon completion, will add approximately $2.25 to $3.5 million per month of additional revenue.

FISHERS, IN / ACCESSWIRE / July 29, 2022 / American Resources Corporation (NASDAQ:AREC) ("American Resources" or the "Company"), a next generation and socially responsible supplier of rare earth and critical elements, carbon and advanced carbon materials to the new infrastructure and electrification marketplace, today announced that it is in development of its second section that will operate as a continuous haulage bridge section, which upon completion, is expected to add $2.25 to $3.5 million per month of revenue at current market prices.

Mark Jensen, CEO of American Resources commented, "Our series of Carnegie mines and the McCoy Elkhorn complex are major contributors to our revenue, cash flow and future growth. Carnegie 1 is a very young mine to where we have advanced to the point in the resource seam where we can expand our mine plan by adding additional sections and further reduce the overall cost structure and increase performance. Given our extensive equipment and asset base that we already own, we are able to bring this bridge section online with very little CAPEX and highlights the flexibility and growth attributes of our mining platform. Expanding an existing mine using owned equipment is the highest margin method to grow in today's market environment as it doesn't require the same labor, energy or equipment costs to expand an existing mine versus starting a new mine making it a very accretive opportunity for the Company."

The Company's Carnegie 1 team is currently setting up the ventilation required to start the added bridge section which is anticipated to start production in the next 60 to 90 days. The Carnegie 1 mine produces high vol metallurgical carbon that is not burned for energy use. Instead, specific characteristics allow it to be blended with iron to make new steel. This quality of product is in high demand in the current market environment given worldwide infrastructure growth coupled with persistent supply constraints as many producers in the U.S. are producing from old mines that are expensive to operate and coming to end-of-life. American Resources is focused on mine plans and operations that are built to be low cost with a mine life ranging from 20 to 40+ years while also making them safer and more productive operations.

American Resources continues to focus on running efficient streamlined operations in being a new-aged supplier of raw materials to the infrastructure and electrification marketplace in the most sustainable of ways, while also helping the world achieve its goals of carbon neutrality. By operating with low or no legacy costs and having one of the largest and most innovative growth pipelines in the industry, American Resources Corporation works to maximize value for its investors by positioning its large asset base to best fit a new-aged economy, while being able to scale its operations to meet the growth of the markets it serves.
