Oxford Resource Partners, LP Receives Reclamation Awards

COLUMBUS, Ohio, Sept. 6, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Oxford Resource Partners, LP (NYSE: OXF) ("Oxford") today announced that it has been selected to receive two Excellence in Surface Coal Mining Reclamation Awards from the U.S. Department of the Interior's Office of Surface Mining for its reclamation efforts at the Jockey Hollow Mine site in Harrison County, Ohio.  Oxford is the 2011 recipient of the Good Neighbor Award for successfully working with the surrounding land owners and the community while completing mining and reclamation, and the National Award for achieving exemplary mining and reclamation practices.  

President and Chief Executive Officer Charles C. Ungurean commented, "We are honored to receive these prestigious awards which are a testament to our commitment to environmental stewardship in our mining practices.  As the leading producers of surface mined coal in Ohio, Oxford employees embrace their responsibility to be leaders in reclamation.  I would like to congratulate them for their diligent efforts."

The Jockey Hollow Mine site was reclaimed utilizing the Forestry Reclamation Approach as part of the Appalachian Regional Reforestation Initiative (ARRI).  This approach utilizes non-traditional methods to establish a superior growth medium for hardwood forests.  Approximately 185 acres have been reclaimed for use by the Ohio Division of Wildlife's Jockey Hollow Wildlife Area. This area is scheduled to be open to the public this fall.
