Global Earth Energy and Modern Coal have entered into a contract mining agreement with Abundance Coal.

Abundance Coal will be the contract miner for the Samuel Coal sites after Global Earth and Modern Coal close the acquisition of those sites.

The mines are located on about 5,000 acres near Hindman in the eastern part of the US state of Kentucky.

The partners’ acquisition consists of three existing mines that produce high-quality steam and metallurgical coal.

Abundance Coal is a major contract mining company in eastern Kentucky.
