It’s Pristine, not Contura

A story in last week’s edition of The Mountain Eagle incorrectly identified Contura Coal as involved in the purchase of coal assets in Pike and Letcher County now owned by the bankrupt Cambrian Holdings LLC.

Pristine Clean Energy LLC, the only bidder for the Premier-Elkhorn properties owned by Cambrian, is located in a Sutton, W.Va., office formerly occupied by Alpha Natural Resources, which merged with Contura last year.

Pristine will assume about $50 million reclamation obligations and other debts in return for the assets. A federal bankruptcy court judge approved the sale last week.
