"With over 12 years of experience in successfully operating coal assets throughout all stages of market cycles,
we have built a platform focused on our customers, investors 
and employees to deliver accretive growth safely and efficiently."

American Resources Corporation’s roots date back to 2006 when the founding partners successfully restructured a coal mining
complex of 7 mines and a wash plant located in Floyd County, Kentucky. Since then, management has utilized their operating
philosophy focused on safety, efficiency, cost, and coal quality to acquire and restructure high-cost mining complexes in eastern
Kentucky to become efficient and profitable operations. In 2015, the company’s wholly-owned subsidiary, Quest Energy Inc., was
formed as management actively pursued acquiring strategic coal operations that were struggling during the coal industry’s downturn.

Through the acquisition of Deane Mining, ICG Knott County (later renamed Knott County Coal), and McCoy Elkhorn Coal,
American Resources currently operates both metallurgical and high-grade thermal coal mines in eastern Kentucky. With
a large number of low-holding cost permits that access metallurgical coal, PCI and high BTU low sulfur coal the Company
is executing on its organic growth plan while continuing to identify accretive acquisition targets that meets American
Resources’ low-cost, efficient coal mining model.

"American Resources Corporation is not just another commodity-based company; we are building the next generation of mining
companies utilizing strict discipline of performance, productivity and safety. The key to our success is the operating culture
our team embraces that thrives on efficiency and accountability, enabling the company to capitalize on all market cycles."
