The Pittsburgh No. 8 Seam consists of only four producers. They include American Consolidated Natural Resources (formerly Murray Energy Corporation), CONSOL Energy Inc., Alliance Resource Partners LP, and Contura Energy, Inc. Unfortunately, the COVID-19 pandemic has reduced coal demand for all the Pittsburgh No. 8 Seam producers through the Third Quarter of 2020. There has been news that Contura Energy executed a definitive agreement with Iron Senergy Holding, LLC for the divestment of Contura Energy’s Pennsylvania operations, including the Cumberland Mine. The equity transaction is expected to close before the end of the year, and upon closing will transfer to Iron Senergy the subsidiaries that hold Contura Energy’s Cumberland and Emerald mines and the associated coal reserves, mining permits and operations, infrastructure, equipment, and transloading facilities.
