For the first half of 2012, higher sales volumes from the River View and Tunnel Ridge mines, as well as the acquisition of the Onton mine, more than offset lower sales into the export markets driving total sales volumes to a record 16.5 million tons, an increase of 6.8% compared to the 2011 period. Average coal sales price has also increased to a record $57.19 in the 2012 period, rising $2.08 per ton sold compared to the 2011 period.On the strength of record revenues, ARLP also reported record EBITDA of $155.5 million in the 2012 quarter, an increase of 6% compared to the 2011 quarter. Compared to the 2011 period, however, EBITDA year-to-date fell slightly to $287 million due to the past through of losses related to ARLP's investment in the White Oak development project and the impact on margins from lower export sales in the 2012 period I mentioned a moment ago.
