American Resources Corporation has reported its second quarter of 2020 financial results and provided a corporate update. American Resources Corporation Chairman and CEO said Mr Mark Jensen said "Over the course of the second quarter our team continued to execute on the strategic transformation of the Company to become a more diversified infrastructure company. In tandem, we made significant progress in advancing our efforts to better our industry-leading position as a stable, long-term and low-cost supplier of metallurgical carbon. Additionally, we were able to further demonstrate our ability to innovate and adapt by generating high-margin revenue from our recently established American Metals LLC subsidiary, which further diversifies our business model, while continuing to divest and monetize non-core assets."

Second Quarter 2020 Key Highlights

Divested certain non-core assets in eastern Kentucky to further reduce the Company's overall cost structure and environmental liabilities (asset retirement obligations) from its balance sheet and enhance the flexibility of its focused supply base in anticipation of worldwide infrastructure related demand.

Added a third, and subsequently have added a fourth environmental reclamation crew during the COVID-19 pandemic to expand its environmental remediation efforts to repair decommissioned and irrational thermal coal mining sites that are at or below the Company's proprietary (economic and environmental) margin to reduce the Company's long-term cost structure and maintain a safe working environment for employees.

Launched metal aggregation and processing subsidiary, American Metals to aggregate and process steel to be recycled in traditional and electric arc furnaces to produce new recycled steel. American Metals is working in conjunction with its expanded environmental remediation efforts primarily sourcing used steel from decommissioned coal mining operations and associated activities in the region. American Metals further demonstrates the Company's ability to adapt and diversify its business as a leading supplier of raw materials to the growing global infrastructure market.

Financial Results for Second Quarter 2020
For the second quarter of 2020, American Resources reported net income of USD 1.3 million for the three months ended June 30, 2020, as compared with a net loss of USD 8.96 million in the prior-year period.

Operational Results
During the second quarter of 2020, all carbon production was idled due to the disruptions related to the global COVID-19 pandemic.
