Alpha Natural Resources Statement on Conductivity Settlement


Today's settlement between two of
Alpha Natural Resources' affiliated operations (Alex Energy and Elk Run Coal
Company) and three environmental organizations charts a path forward to
improve certain stream conditions in the areas near these operations. It does
not include a monetary civil penalty.

The role conductivity plays in stream quality is still an evolving area of
research. The decision to settle this litigation is not an endorsement of any
research or the currently available methods for measuring stream health.

This settlement's compliance deadline of August 1, 2019 will allow for the
continued study of this issue, and also provides reasonable time and
flexibility for the evaluation and development of the most appropriate
technologies, water management methods and other approaches to improve stream
conditions in an environmentally and economically responsible manner.
