ITEM 1.04 MINE SAFETY – REPORTING OF SHUTDOWNS AND PATTERNS OF VIOLATIONS

On July 21, 2010, the Dodd−Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act (the "Act") was enacted.   Section 1503 of the Act included new reporting requirements related to mine safety, including disclosing on a Current Report on Form 8-K the receipt of an imminent danger order under Section 107(a) of the Federal Mine Safety and Health Act of 1977 ("the Mine Act") issued by the federal Mine Safety and Health Administration ("MSHA").

On Wednesday, April 3, 2019, at approximately 9:30 a.m., Eastern Time, Tunnel Ridge, LLC (“Tunnel Ridge”), an operating subsidiary of the Partnership, received an imminent danger order under Section 107(a) of the Mine Act at the Tunnel Ridge Mine.  The Order was issued when a representative of MSHA allegedly observed the operator of a continuous mining machine walking past the cutter head of the continuous mining machine while the continuous mining machine was in the process of tramming from one location to another.  No miners were injured as a result of the condition alleged in the Order.  The continuous mining machine was stopped and remained stationary, until the continuous mining machine operator repositioned himself in relationship to the machine.  The Order was then terminated.  Tunnel Ridge is reviewing MSHA’s Order and may seek judicial review of its issuance.
