APPALACHIA, Va., June 26, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Arch Coal, Inc.

Pine Branch was recognized by the Virginia Department of Mines, Minerals and Energy and the Virginia Coal Mine Safety Board today.

"We're very proud of our Virginia employees for demonstrating strong leadership in mine safety," said Charles Snavely, president of eastern operations. "Achieving the best mine safety record in the state is a reflection of Arch's unwavering commitment to the safety of our employees and our mines."

The Cumberland River mining complex and its approximately 240 employees operate two coal mines, Pine Branch in Wise County, Va. and Trace Fork in Letcher County, Ky. Cumberland River's top-ranked mine rescue team earned the Grand Championship at the Virginia Mining Institute Contest in 2011 and 2012.
