AMERICAN RESOURCES CORPORATION

 NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

UNAUDITED

 

NOTE 1 - SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES

 

American Resources Corporation (ARC or the Company) operates through subsidiaries that were acquired in 2019, 2018, 2016 and 2015 for the purpose of acquiring, rehabilitating and operating various natural resource assets including coal, oil and natural gas.

 

Basis of Presentation and Consolidation:

 

The consolidated financial statements include the accounts of the Company and its wholly owned subsidiaries Quest Energy Inc (QEI), Deane Mining, LLC (Deane), Quest Processing LLC (Quest Processing), ERC Mining Indiana Corp (ERC), McCoy Elkhorn Coal LLC (McCoy), Knott County Coal LLC (KCC), Wyoming County Coal (WCC), Empire Kentucky Land, Inc, Colonial Coal Company, Inc. (Empire), Perry County Resources LLC (PCR), American Rare Earth LLC (ARE) and American Metals LLC (AM). All significant intercompany accounts and transactions have been eliminated.

 

On June 8, 2020, American Rare Earth LLC was created as a wholly owned subsidiary of American Resources Corp for the purpose of exploring and monetizing rare earth mineral deposits.

 

On June 28, 2020, American Metals LLC was created as a wholly owned subsidiary of American Resources Corp for the purpose of aggregating, processing and selling recovered steel and metals.

 

The accompanying Consolidated Financial Statements are unaudited and have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States (“U.S. GAAP”).

 

Interim Financial Information

 

Certain information and footnote disclosures normally included in annual financial statements prepared in accordance with U.S. GAAP have been omitted. In the opinion of management, these interim unaudited Consolidated Financial Statements reflect all normal and recurring adjustments necessary for a fair presentation of the results for the periods presented. Results of operations for the three and six months ended June 30, 2020 are not necessarily indicative of the results to be expected for the year ending December 31, 2020 or any other period. These financial statements should be read in conjunction with the Company’s 2018 audited financial statements and notes thereto which were filed on Form 10-K on May 29, 2020.

 

Going Concern: The Company has suffered recurring losses from operations and currently has a working capital deficit. These conditions raise substantial doubt about the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern. We plan to generate profits by expanding current coal operations as well as developing new coal operations. However, we will need to raise the funds required to do so through sale of our securities or through loans from third parties. We do not have any commitments or arrangements from any person to provide us with any additional capital. If additional financing is not available when needed, we may need to cease operations. We may not be successful in raising the capital needed to expand or develop operations. Management believes that actions presently being taken to obtain additional funding provide the opportunity for the Company to continue as a going concern. The accompanying financial statements have been prepared assuming the Company will continue as a going concern; no adjustments to the financial statements have been made to account for this uncertainty.

Convertible Preferred Securities: We account for hybrid contracts that feature conversion options in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States. ASC 815, Derivatives and Hedging Activities (“ASC 815”) requires companies to bifurcate conversion options from their host instruments and account for them as free standing derivative financial instruments according to certain criteria. The criteria includes circumstances in which (a) the economic characteristics and risks of the embedded derivative instrument are not clearly and closely related to the economic characteristics and risks of the host contract, (b) the hybrid instrument that embodies both the embedded derivative instrument and the host contract is not re-measured at fair value under otherwise applicable generally accepted accounting principles with changes in fair value reported in earnings as they occur and (c) a separate instrument with the same terms as the embedded derivative instrument would be considered a derivative instrument.

 

We also follow ASC 480-10, Distinguishing Liabilities from Equity (“ASC 480-10”) in its evaluation of the accounting for a hybrid instrument. A financial instrument that embodies an unconditional obligation, or a financial instrument other than an outstanding share that embodies a conditional obligation, that the issuer must or may settle by issuing a variable number of its equity shares shall be classified as a liability (or an asset in some circumstances) if, at inception, the monetary value of the obligation is based solely or predominantly on any one of the following: (a) a fixed monetary amount known at inception; (b) variations in something other than the fair value of the issuer’s equity shares; or (c) variations inversely related to changes in the fair value of the issuer’s equity shares. Hybrid instruments meeting these criteria are not further evaluated for any embedded derivatives and are carried as a liability at fair value at each balance sheet date with remeasurements reported as a component of other income/expense in the accompanying Consolidated Statements of Operations.

 

Cash is maintained in bank deposit accounts which, at times, may exceed federally insured limits. To date, there have been no losses in such accounts.

 

Restricted cash: As part of the Kentucky New Markets Development Program (See Note 3) an asset management fee reserve was set up in the amount of $116,115. The funds are held to pay annual asset management fees to an unrelated party through 2021. The balance as of June 30, 2020 and December 31, 2019 was $19,138 and $47,987, respectively.

 

The total balance of restricted cash also includes amounts held under the management agreement in the amount of $0 and $79,662, respectively. The management agreement was terminated in 2019 upon the Gold Star acquisition.

 

During 2019 the Company established a reclamation bonding collateral fund. The balance of the restricted cash being held totaled $250,000 and $250,000 as of June 30, 2020 and December 31, 2019. 

 

During 2020, the Company established an escrow account for certain assumed liabilities in the PCR acquisition. The balance as of June 30, 2020 and December 31, 2019 was $149,000 and $0, respectively.

 

 The balance as of June 30, 2020 and December 31, 2019 was $535,641 and $411,692, respectively.

 

The following table sets forth a reconciliation of cash, cash equivalents, and restricted cash reported in the consolidated balance sheet that agrees to the total of those amounts as presented in the consolidated statement of cash flows for the six months ended June 30, 2020 and June 30, 2019.

Asset Acquisition:

 

On September 23, 2019, American Resources Corporation, (“Buyer”) entered into a binding agreement with Bear Branch Coal LLC, a Kentucky limited liability company, Perry County Coal LLC, a Kentucky limited liability company, Ray Coal LLC, a Kentucky limited liability company, and Whitaker Coal LLC, a Kentucky limited liability company (each a “Seller” and collectively, “Sellers”). The agreement was entered into as part of the bankruptcy proceedings of Cambrian Holding Company LLC, (“Cambrian), and is subject to approval by the United States Bankruptcy Court for the Eastern District of Kentucky (the “Bankruptcy Court”) in the chapter 11 bankruptcy cases of the Sellers, Case No. 19-51200(GRS), by entry of an order in form and substance acceptable to Sellers and Buyer (the “Sale Order). Under the agreement of the Sale Order, each Seller will sell, transfer, assign, convey and deliver to American Resources Corporation, effective as of the Closing, all assets, rights, titles, permits, leases, contracts and interests of such Seller free and clear of all liens, claims, interests and encumbrances, to the fullest extent permitted by the Bankruptcy Court. In consideration for the purchased assets, the Buyer will assume certain liabilities. Additionally, the Buyer will assume all liabilities relating to the transferred permits and the associated reclamation and post-mining liabilities of the purchased assets. On September 26, 2019, the Company received notice that a certain lease assumption as part of the PCR acquisition was being disputed by the lessor. As of the report date, the Company is in the process of transferring the permits.

 

On September 27, 2019, PCR closed and acquired certain assets in exchange for assuming certain liabilities of Perry County Coal, LLC and a cash payment of $1. The preliminary fair values of the asset retirement obligation liabilities assumed were determined to be $2,009,181. Additional assumed liabilities total $3,036,987, of which $1,067,000 of the assumed liabilities are in negotiation as of the report date. The liabilities assumed do not require fair value readjustments.

 

The assets acquired do not represent a business as defined in FASB AS 805-10-20 due to their classification as a single asset. Accordingly, the assets acquired are initially recognized at the consideration paid, which was the liabilities assumed and a cash payment of $1, including direct acquisition costs, of which there were none. The cost is allocated to the group of assets acquired based on their relative fair value. Because the transaction closed near the end of the reporting quarter the values assigned are provisional as of March 31, 2020 while the company continues to gather information, including evaluations of mining permits, discovery of assumed unsecured payables and timing and extent of end of mine life cost. The assets acquired and liabilities assumed of Perry County Coal, LLC were as follows at the purchase date:

On March 4, 2020, PCR entered into a sales agreement with an unrelated entity for three non-core permits which were acquired during the initial purchase on September 27, 2019. At the time of the purchase, PCR did not assign any value to the permits as they were not within the company’s plans to operate. The sale of the permits resulted in the release of $2,386,439 of reclamation bonds and $336,995 of asset retirement obligation liability. Consideration received was $700,000 in cash and $300,000 in equipment. The equipment has not been received as of the report date. The transaction resulted in a gain on sale of $1,061,225.

 

On May 8, 2020, the Company entered into a Settlement, Rescission and Mutual Release Agreement with the parties of the Empire acquisition. The agreement provides for the property of Empire to transfer back to the former parties for the return of 2,000,000 common shares of the Company and extinguishment $2,000,000 seller financing note. Additionally, permits and bonding liability associated with the Point Rock Mine were also transferred back to the original permit holders for the consideration of them assuming the reclamation liability. The transaction resulted in a gain on sale of $6,820,949 for the 6 month period ending June 30, 2020.

Asset Retirement Obligations (ARO) – Reclamation: At the time they are incurred, legal obligations associated with the retirement of long-lived assets are reflected at their estimated fair value, with a corresponding charge to mine development. Obligations are typically incurred when we commence development of underground and surface mines, and include reclamation of support facilities, refuse areas and slurry ponds or through acquisitions.

 

Obligations are reflected at the present value of their future cash flows. We reflect accretion of the obligations for the period from the date they incurred through the date they are extinguished. The asset retirement obligation assets are amortized using the units-of-production method over estimated recoverable (proved and probable) reserves. We are using a discount rate of 10%. Federal and State laws require that mines be reclaimed in accordance with specific standards and approved reclamation plans, as outlined in mining permits. Activities include reclamation of pit and support acreage at surface mines, sealing portals at underground mines, and reclamation of refuse areas and slurry ponds.

 

We assess our ARO at least annually and reflect revisions for permit changes, change in our estimated reclamation costs and changes in the estimated timing of such costs. During the periods ending June 30, 2020 and 2019, $- and $- were incurred for loss on settlement on ARO, respectively.

 

The table below reflects the changes to our ARO:

Revenue Recognition: The Company adopted and recognizes revenue in accordance with ASC 606 as of January 1, 2018, using the modified retrospective approach. The Company concluded that the adoption did not change the timing at which the Company historically recognized revenue nor did it have a material impact on its consolidated financial statements.

 

Revenue is recognized when performance obligations under the terms of a contract with our customers are satisfied; for all contracts this occurs when control of the promised goods have been transferred to our customers. For coal shipments to domestic and international customers via rail, control is transferred when the railcar is loaded.

 

Our revenue is comprised of sales of mined coal, sales of recovered metals and services for processing coal. All of the activity is undertaken in eastern Kentucky.

 

Revenue from metal recovery and sales are recognized when conditions within the contract or sales agreement are met including transfer of title.

 

Revenue from coal processing and loading are recognized when services have been performed according to the contract in place.

 

Our coal sales generally include 10 to 30-day payment terms following the transfer of control of the goods to the customer. We typically do not include extended payment terms in our contracts with customers. As such, spot sales prices and forward contract pricing has declined. 

 

During late 2019 management anticipated adverse market conditions globally, and in response began to selectively reduce or idle coal production operations and furlough or terminate employees. During Q1 2020, the worldwide COVID-19 outbreak sharply reduced worldwide demand for infrastructure and steel products and their necessary inputs including Metallurgical coal. Company management fully idled the Company’s operations accordingly, and the operations have remained idled through the report date. These recent, global market disruptions and developments are expected to result in lower sales and gross margins for the coal industry and the Company in 2020 and possibly beyond.

 

Allowance For Doubtful Accounts: The Company recognizes an allowance for losses on trade and other accounts receivable in an amount equal to the estimated probable losses net of recoveries. The allowance is based on an analysis of historical bad debt experience, current receivables aging and expected future write-offs, as well as an assessment of specific identifiable amounts considered at risk or uncollectible.

 

Allowance for trade receivables as of June 30, 2020 and December 31, 2019 amounted to $0, for both periods. Allowance for other accounts receivables, including note receivables as of June 30, 2020 and December 31, 2019 amounted to $1,494,570 and $0, respectively. The allowance related to the purchase of a note receivable from a third party. The note receivable has collateral in certain mining permits which are strategic to KCC. Timing of payment on the note is uncertain resulting a full allowance for the note.

 

Trade and loan receivables are carried at amortized cost, net of allowance for losses. Amortized cost approximated book value as of June 30, 2020 and December 31, 2019.

 

Reclassifications: Reclassifications of prior periods have been made to conform with current year presentation.

Overview

 

When we formed our company, our focus was to (i) construct and/or purchase and manage a chain of combined gasoline, diesel and natural gas (NG) fueling and service stations (initially, in the Miami, FL area); (ii) construct conversion factories to convert NG to liquefied natural gas (LNG) and compressed natural gas (CNG); and (iii) construct conversion factories to retrofit vehicles currently using gasoline or diesel fuel to also run on NG in the United States and also to build a convenience store to serve our customers in each of our locations. These operations represent historical operations of the company and do not represent the company’s current operations and business plan.

 

On January 5, 2017, American Resources Corporation (ARC or the Company) executed a Share Exchange Agreement between the Company and Quest Energy Inc. (Quest Energy), a private company incorporated in the State of Indiana on May 2015 with offices at 12115 Visionary Way, Fishers, IN 46038, and due to the fulfillment of various conditions precedent to closing of the transaction, the control of the Company was transferred to the Quest Energy shareholders on February 7, 2017. This transaction resulted in Quest Energy becoming a wholly-owned subsidiary of ARC. Through Quest Energy, ARC was able to acquire coal mining and coal processing operations, substantially all located in eastern Kentucky and western West Virginia.

 

Quest Energy currently has seven coal mining and processing operating subsidiaries: McCoy Elkhorn Coal LLC (doing business as McCoy Elkhorn Coal Company) (McCoy Elkhorn), Knott County Coal LLC (Knott County Coal), Deane Mining, LLC (Deane Mining) and Wyoming County Coal LLC (Wyoming County), Quest Processing LLC (Quest Processing), Perry County Resources (Perry County) located in eastern Kentucky and western West Virginia within the Central Appalachian coal basin, and ERC Mining Indiana Corporation (ERC) located in southwest Indiana within the Illinois coal basin. The coal deposits under control by the Company are generally comprise of metallurgical coal (used for steel making), pulverized coal injections (used in the steel making process) and high-BTU, low sulfur, low moisture bituminous coal used for a variety of uses within several industries, including industrial customers and specialty products.

 

We have not classified, and as a result, do not have any “proven” or “probable” reserves as defined in United States Securities and Exchange Commission Industry Guide 7, and as a result, our company and its business activities are deemed to be in the exploration stage until mineral deposits are defined on our properties.

 

McCoy Elkhorn Coal LLC

 

General:

 

Located primarily within Pike County, Kentucky, McCoy Elkhorn is currently comprised of two active mines (Mine #15 and the Carnegie Mine), one mine in “hot idle” status (the PointRock Mine), two coal preparation facilities (Bevins #1 and Bevins #2), and other mines in various stages of development or reclamation. McCoy Elkhorn sells its coal to a variety of customers, both domestically and internationally, primarily to the steel making industry as a high-vol “B” coal or blended coal, and high-grade thermal coal to utilities.

Mines:

 

Mine #15 is an underground mine in the Millard (also known as Glamorgan) coal seam and located near Meta, Kentucky. Mine #15 is mined via room-and-pillar mining methods using continuous miners, and the coal is belted directly from the stockpile to McCoy Elkhorn’s coal preparation facility. Mine #15 is currently a “company run” mine, whereby the Company manages the workforce at the mine. The coal from Mine #15 is stockpiled at the mine site and belted directly to the Company’s nearby coal preparation facilities. Production at Mine #15 re-commenced under Quest Energy’s ownership in September 2016.

 

The Carnegie Mine is an underground mine in the Alma and Upper Alma coal seams and located near Kimper, Kentucky. In 2011, coal production from the Carnegie Mine in the Alma coal seam commenced and then subsequently the mine was idled. Production at the Carnegie Mine was reinitiated in early 2017 under Quest Energy’s ownership and is currently being mined via room-and-pillar mining methods utilizing a continuous miner. The coal is stockpiled on-site and trucked approximately 7 miles to McCoy Elkhorn’s preparation facilities. The Carnegie Mine is currently operated as a modified contractor mine, whereby McCoy Elkhorn provides the mining infrastructure and equipment for the operations and pays the contractor a fixed per-ton fee for managing the workforce, procuring the supplies, and maintaining the equipment and infrastructure in proper working order.

 

The PointRock Mine is a surface mine in a variety of coal seams, primarily in the Pond Creek, the Lower Alma, the Upper Alma, and Cedar Grove coal seams and located near Phelps, Kentucky. Coal has been produced from the PointRock Mine in the past under different operators. Quest Energy acquired the PointRock Mine in April 2018 and primarily performed reclamation work during 2019. PointRock is anticipated to be mined via contour, auger, and highwall mining techniques. The coal will be stockpiled on-site and trucked approximately 23 miles to McCoy Elkhorn’s preparation facilities. The PointRock Mine is anticipated to be operated as a modified contractor mine, whereby McCoy Elkhorn provides certain mining infrastructure and equipment for the operations and pays a contractor a fixed per-ton fee for managing the workforce, procuring other equipment and supplies, and maintaining the equipment and infrastructure in proper working order. The PointRock Mine has the estimated capacity to produce up to approximately 15,000 tons per month of coal and has not yet started coal production under McCoy Elkhorn’s ownership.

 

Quest Energy acquired the PointRock Mine in April 2018. On May 8, 2020, the PointRock Mine permits were released from the Company’s control upon the settlement agreement with Empire.

 

Beginning in January 2020 through the report date, Mine #15 and Carnegie 1 mines were idled due to the adverse market effects Covid-19 global pandemic.

 

Processing & Transportation:

 

The Bevins #1 Preparation Plant is an 800 ton-per hour coal preparation facility located near Meta, Kentucky, across the road from Mine #15. Bevins #1 has raw coal stockpile storage of approximately 25,000 tons and clean coal stockpile storage of 100,000 tons of coal. The Bevins #1 facility has a fine coal circuit and a stoker circuit that allows for enhance coal recovery and various coal sizing options depending on the needs of the customer. The Company acquired the Bevins Preparation Plants as idled facilities, and since acquisition, the primary work completed at the Bevins Preparation Plants by the Company includes rehabilitating the plants’ warehouse and replacing belt lines.

 

The Bevins #2 Preparation Plant is on the same permit site as Bevins #1 and is a 500 ton-per-hour processing facility with fine coal recovery and a stoker circuit for coal sizing options. Bevins #2 has raw coal stockpile storage of 25,000 tons of coal and a clean coal stockpile storage of 45,000 tons of coal. We are currently utilizing less than 10% of the available processing capacity of Bevins #1 and Bevins #2.

 

Both Bevins #1 and Bevins #2 have a batch-weight loadout and rail spur for loading coal into trains for rail shipments. The spur has storage for 110 rail cars and is serviced by CSX Transportation and is located on CSX’s Big Sandy, Coal Run Subdivision. Both Bevins #1 and Bevins #2 have coarse refuse and slurry impoundments called Big Groundhog and Lick Branch. While the Big Groundhog impoundment is nearing the end of its useful life, the Lick Branch impoundment has significant operating life and will be able to provide for coarse refuse and slurry storage for the foreseeable future at Bevins #1 and Bevins #2. Coarse refuse from Bevins #1 and Bevins #2 is belted to the impoundments. Both Bevins #1 and Bevins #2 are facilities owned by McCoy Elkhorn, subject to certain restrictions present in the agreement between McCoy Elkhorn and the surface land owner.

Table of Contents

   

Both Bevins #1 and Bevins #2, as well as the rail loadout, are operational and any work required on any of the plants or loadouts would be routine maintenance. The allocated cost of for this property at McCoy Elkhorn Coal paid by the company is $95,210.

 

Due to additional coal processing storage capacity at Bevins #1 and Bevins #2 Preparation Plants, McCoy Elkhorn has the ability to process, store, and load coal for other regional coal producers for an agreed-to fee.

 

Additional Permits:

 

In addition to the above mines, McCoy Elkhorn holds 11 additional coal mining permits that are idled operations or in various stages of reclamation. For the idled coal mining operations, McCoy Elkhorn will determine which coal mines to bring back into production, if any, as the coal market changes, and there are currently no other idled mines within McCoy Elkhorn that are slated to go into production in the foreseeable future. Any idled mines that are brought into production would require significant upfront capital investment, and there is no assurance of the feasibility of any such new operations.

Mineral and Surface Leases

 

Coal mining and processing involves the extraction of coal (mineral) and the use of surface property incidental to such extraction and processing. All of the mineral and surface related to the Company’s coal mining operations is leased from various mineral and surface owners (the “Leases”). The Company’s operating subsidiaries, collectively, are parties to approximately 200 various Leases and other agreements required for the Company’s coal mining and processing operations. The Leases are with a variety of Lessors, from individuals to professional land management firms such as the Elk Horn Coal Company LLC and Alma Land Company. In some instances, the Company has leases with Land Resources & Royalties LLC (LRR), a professional leasing firm that is an entity wholly owned by Quest MGMT LLC, an entity owned by members of Quest Energy Inc.’s management.

 

Coal Sales

 

ARC sells its coal to domestic and international customers, some which blend ARC’s coal at east coast ports with other qualities of coal for export. Coal sales currently come from the Company’s McCoy Elkhorn’s Mine #15 and Carnegie 1 mines, and Perry’s E4-2 mine. The Company may, at times, purchase coal from other regional producers to sell on its contracts.

 

Coal sales at the Company is primarily outsource to third party intermediaries who act on the Company’s behalf to source potential coal sales and contracts. The third-party intermediaries have no ability to bind the Company to any contracts, and all coal sales are approved by management of the Company.

 

Due to the Covid-19 global pandemic, traditional sales channels have been disrupted. As a supplier of the raw materials into the steel and industrial industries, our customers are sensitive to global fluctuations in steel demand. 

 

Competition

 

The coal industry is intensely competitive. The most important factors on which the Company competes are coal quality, delivered costs to the customer and reliability of supply. Our principal domestic competitors will include Corsa Coal Corporation, Ramaco Resources, Blackhawk Mining, Coronado Coal, Arch Coal, Contura Energy, and Warrior Met Coal. Many of these coal producers may have greater financial resources and larger coal deposit bases than we do. We also compete in international markets directly with domestic companies and with companies that produce coal from one or more foreign countries, such as China, Australia, Colombia, Indonesia and South Africa.

 

Legal Proceedings

 

From time to time, we are subject to ordinary routine litigation incidental to our normal business operations. 

 

Please see financial statement note 9 for detail on cases.

 

Environmental, Governmental, and Other Regulatory Matters

 

Our operations are subject to federal, state, and local laws and regulations, such as those relating to matters such as permitting and licensing, employee health and safety, reclamation and restoration of mining properties, water discharges, air emissions, plant and wildlife protection, the storage, treatment and disposal of wastes, remediation of contaminants, surface subsidence from underground mining and the effects of mining on surface water and groundwater conditions. In addition, we may become subject to additional costs for benefits for current and retired coal miners. These environmental laws and regulations include, but are not limited to, SMCRA with respect to coal mining activities and ancillary activities; the CAA with respect to air emissions; the CWA with respect to water discharges and the permitting of key operational infrastructure such as impoundments; RCRA with respect to solid and hazardous waste management and disposal, as well as the regulation of underground storage tanks; the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation and Liability Act (“CERCLA” or “Superfund”) with respect to releases, threatened releases and remediation of hazardous substances; the Endangered Species Act of 1973 (“ESA”) with respect to threatened and endangered species; and the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 (“NEPA”) with respect to the evaluation of environmental impacts related to any federally issued permit or license. Many of these federal laws have state and local counterparts which also impose requirements and potential liability on our operations.

Compliance with these laws and regulations may be costly and time-consuming and may delay commencement, continuation or expansion of exploration or production at our facilities. They may also depress demand for our products by imposing more stringent requirements and limits on our customers’ operations. Moreover, these laws are constantly evolving and are becoming increasingly complex and stringent over time. These laws and regulations, particularly new legislative or administrative proposals, or judicial interpretations of existing laws and regulations related to the protection of the environment could result in substantially increased capital, operating and compliance costs. Individually and collectively, these developments could have a material adverse effect on our operations directly and/or indirectly, through our customers’ inability to use our products.

 

Certain implementing regulations for these environmental laws are undergoing revision or have not yet been promulgated. As a result, we cannot always determine the ultimate impact of complying with existing laws and regulations.

 

Due in part to these extensive and comprehensive regulatory requirements and ever- changing interpretations of these requirements, violations of these laws can occur from time to time in our industry and also in our operations. Expenditures relating to environmental compliance are a major cost consideration for our operations and safety and compliance is a significant factor in mine design, both to meet regulatory requirements and to minimize long-term environmental liabilities. To the extent that these expenditures, as with all costs, are not ultimately reflected in the prices of our products and services, operating results will be reduced.

 

In addition, our customers are subject to extensive regulation regarding the environmental impacts associated with the combustion or other use of coal, which may affect demand for our coal. Changes in applicable laws or the adoption of new laws relating to energy production, greenhouse gas emissions and other emissions from use of coal products may cause coal to become a less attractive source of energy, which may adversely affect our mining operations, the cost structure and, the demand for coal.

 

We believe that our competitors with operations in the United States are confronted by substantially similar conditions. However, foreign producers and operators may not be subject to similar requirements and may not be required to undertake equivalent costs in or be subject to similar limitations on their operations. As a result, the costs and operating restrictions necessary for compliance with United States environmental laws and regulations may have an adverse effect on our competitive position with regard to those foreign competitors. The specific impact on each competitor may vary depending on a number of factors, including the age and location of its operating facilities, applicable legislation and its production methods.

 

The Mine Act and the MINER Act, and regulations issued under these federal statutes, impose stringent health and safety standards on mining operations. The regulations that have been adopted under the Mine Act and the MINER Act are comprehensive and affect numerous aspects of mining operations, including training of mine personnel, mining procedures, roof control, ventilation, blasting, use and maintenance of mining equipment, dust and noise control, communications, emergency response procedures, and other matters. The Mine Safety and Health Administration (“MSHA”) regularly inspects mines to ensure compliance with regulations promulgated under the Mine Act and MINER Act.

 

Due to the large number of mining permits held by the Company that have been previously mined and operated, there is a significant amount of environmental reclamation and remediation required by the Company to comply with local, state, and federal regulations for coal mining companies.

As a public company, we will be subject to certain reporting and other compliance requirements of a publicly reporting company. We will be subject to certain costs for such compliance which private companies may not choose to make. We have identified such costs as being primarily for audits, legal services, filing expenses, financial and reporting controls and shareholder communications and estimate the cost to be approximately $35,000 monthly if the activities of our Company remain somewhat the same for the next few months. We have included such costs in our monthly cash flow needs and expect to pay such costs from a combination of cash from operations and debt offerings.

 

Business Effect of Covid-19

 

During 2020, the worldwide COVID-19 outbreak has resulted in muted demand for infrastructure and steel products and their necessary inputs including Metallurgical coal. These recent developments are expected to result in lower sales and gross margins. Because of the adverse market conditions caused by the global pandemic the Company’s operations were idled in January 2020 and remained idled through the report date.

 

Off Balance Sheet Arrangements

 

We do not have any off-balance sheet arrangements that we are required to disclose pursuant to these regulations. In the ordinary course of business, we enter into operating lease commitments, purchase commitments and other contractual obligations. These transactions are recognized in our financial statements in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States.

 

Critical Accounting Policies

 

The preparation of financial statements requires management to utilize estimates and make judgments that affect the reported amounts of assets, liabilities, revenues and expenses and related disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities. These estimates are based on historical experience and on various other assumptions that management believes to be reasonable under the circumstances. The estimates are evaluated by management on an ongoing basis, and the results of these evaluations form a basis for making decisions about the carrying value of assets and liabilities that are not readily apparent from other sources. Although actual results may differ from these estimates under different assumptions or conditions, management believes that the estimates used in the preparation of our financial statements are reasonable. The critical accounting policies affecting our financial reporting are summarized in Note1 to the financial statements included elsewhere in this report.

Because we are a smaller reporting company we are not required to include any disclosure under this item.

 

Item 4. Controls and Procedures

 

(a) Management’s Conclusions Regarding Effectiveness of Disclosure Controls and Procedures.

 

The management of the Company is responsible for establishing and maintaining adequate internal control over financial reporting. The Company’s internal control over financial reporting is a process designed under the supervision of the Company’s Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer to provide reasonable assurance regarding the reliability of financial reporting and the preparation of the Company’s financial statements for external purposes in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles.

 

As of June 30, 2020, under the supervision and with the participation of our management, we conducted an evaluation of the effectiveness of the design and operations of our disclosure controls and procedures, as defined in Rules 13a-15(e) and 15d-15(e) promulgated under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934.

 

Based upon our evaluation, as of June 30, 2020, the Company’s management, including its Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer, has concluded that its disclosure controls and procedures were not effective due to the Company’s insufficient number of staff performing accounting and reporting functions and lack of timely reconciliations. Through the use of external consultants and the review process, management believes that the financial statements and other information presented herewith are materially correct.

 

The Company’s disclosure controls and procedures are designed to provide reasonable assurance of achieving their objectives. However, the Company’s management, including its Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer, does not expect that its disclosure controls and procedures will prevent all error and all fraud. A control system, no matter how well conceived and operated, can provide only reasonable, not absolute, assurance that the objectives of the control system are met. Further, the design of a control system must reflect the fact that there are resource constraints, and the benefit of controls must be considered relative to their costs. Because of the inherent limitations in all control systems, no evaluation of controls can provide absolute assurance that all control issues and instances of fraud, if any, within the Company have been detected.

 

(b) Changes in Internal Controls.

 

There have been no changes in the Company’s internal control over financial reporting during the period ended June 30, 2020 that have materially affected the Company’s internal controls over financial reporting.
