The company said late last week that its new home on North Peters Road will permit it to increase its professional staff numbers as Americas continues to grow by seeking out new asset opportunities.
“In pursuit of corporate growth, we are currently performing due diligence on three additional permitted coal projects in Southeastern Kentucky,” president Chris Headrick revealed.
Americas initially announced its move in early April, just a few days after completing its acquisition of Kentucky’s Evans Coal Corporation.
As part of that deal, Americas chief operating officer Sam Johnson was made president of the new wholly owned subsidiary.
"Finalizing the purchase of Evans Coal gives AENY access to more than 1785 acres of permitted coal property,” Headrick said at the time.
According to Kentucky professional engineer Michael Gambrel, Evans Coal controlled approximately 348 million tons of reserves, or 211Mt of recoverable coal, worth more than $US13 billion, as of early April’s market prices.
