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

Section 1503 of the Dodd−Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act (the "Act") requires 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 Tuesday, June 25, 2019, at approximately 9:50 a.m., Central Time, Gibson County Coal, LLC ("GCC"), an operating subsidiary of the Partnership, received an imminent danger order under Section 107(a) of the Mine Act at the Gibson South Mine.  The Order was issued when a representative of MSHA allegedly observed increased methane at the face area of one of the mine’s working sections.  No miners were injured as a result of the condition alleged in the Order.  GCC made various adjustments to the ventilation curtains across the working section and, when retested, the methane levels were observed to be in compliance.  The Order was then terminated.  GCC is reviewing MSHA’s Order and anticipates seeking judicial review of its issuance.
