Mark Zand commented "We are excited about the appointment of Chris as CEO and we are confident that Chris' knowledge, expertise and leadership will continue to successfully guide Rhino's operations, including the development of the new Pennyrile mine in western Kentucky.  While his workload will be diminished, we also look forward to Dave's continued involvement at Rhino.  In addition to the operational experience he brings, Dave will be able to increase his focus on Rhino's diversification efforts, including the ongoing development of the Utica Shale oil and gas property."

Chris Walton commented "I look forward to building Rhino into an even stronger diversified energy company.  Our people, which are our number one asset, are safety oriented with knowledgeable managers and a dedicated workforce.  By utilizing the expertise of our people during this current difficult coal market, along with the development of the Pennyrile mine and anticipated cash flows from our Utica Shale oil and gas investment, we expect to create substantial value for Rhino."

Dave Zatezalo commented, "I am proud of the outstanding safety and operating record that Rhino has established during my tenure and I am confident that Chris will continue to advance Rhino's safety and operational performance.  I also look forward to my new role as Chairman as we continue to grow the Partnership."

This press release is intended to be a qualified notice under Treasury Regulation Section 1.1446-4(b). Brokers and nominees should treat one hundred percent (100.0%) of Rhino's distributions to non-U.S. investors as being attributable to income that is effectively connected with a United States trade or business.  Accordingly, Rhino's distributions to non-U.S. investors are subject to federal income tax withholding at the highest applicable effective tax rate.
