VICE PRESIDENT OF CORPORATE FINANCE & COMMUNICATIONS
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

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
