our story
American Resources Corporation’s roots date back to 2006 when the founding partners acquired and successfully restructured a mining complex of 7 mines and a wash plant located in Floyd County, Kentucky. Since then, management has utilized their operating philosophy focused on safety, efficiency, cost, and quality to acquire and restructure operating complexes in the eastern United States in both positive and challenging operating conditions.

Our entrepreneurial backgrounds lead our business model that is centered around disrupting legacy industries to transition them forward to modern day industry opportunities. We entered the mining industry to pull it forward from an old, inefficient industry that would lead to sustainable jobs for the community and an ever improving environmental footprint. The market demand for steel infrastructure and rare earth and critical elements to support modern infrastructure growth is projected to have decades of strength for our workforce and our investors.
