Regulatory Issues

On January 9, 2012, the U.S. Justice Department said James River Coal subsidiary Triad Mining Inc. had agreed to pay an $810,000 civil penalty and to restore waterways damaged in the unpermitted excavation and filling of streams that flow into the White River at the surface mine Freelandville East Mine, about 70 miles north of Evansville in Knox and Sullivan counties, Indiana. The company also agreed to obtain the required Clean Water Act permit for stream impacts caused by its surface mining operation.[1]
