LEXINGTON, Ky., June 14, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Rhino Resource Partners LP (NYSE: RNO) ("Rhino" or the "Partnership") is pleased to announce the acquisition of approximately 32,600 acres of metallurgical grade coal resources and associated surface rights in Randolph and Upshur Counties, West Virginia.  These properties were acquired at a total acquisition cost of approximately $7,500,000.  These development stage properties are unpermitted and contain no infrastructure.  Rhino intends to fully explore these resources with the hope of proving up a mineable underground metallurgical coal reserve and eventually commencing production.
