*** Coal Lease Summary: ***

  • Tracts 26-33, 43, 44, 47- 50, 52-58, and 60-65 are subject to an Surface Use Agreement (SUA) between CNX and B&N
  • That SUA provides B&N with expansive rights to conduct surface mining operations that could potentially impact any improvements on these properties
  • Buyer would have to try to work with B&N if improvements are contemplated, but B&N still has the right to conduct surface operations and that could prohibit improvements
  • B&N has duty to reclaim any land mined
  • Once reclamation has occurred and the bond has been released, B&N will no longer have rights to these properties
  • The term of this SUA can be up to the year 2065
  • In some cases, B&N may never mine some of these surface properties, but that can't be guaranteed
  • We will share as much information as possible with the buyers, but we cannot share B&N's proposed plans that are not of public record without B&N's permission
  • ***UPDATE:*** potential bidders or interested parties are encouraged to review the associated Surface Use Agreement with the operator, which is available for review in person at: B&N Coal, 38455 Marietta Rd, Dexter City, OH 45727 - call and speak with Angel for an appointment to review at (740) 783-3575
