FISHERS, IN / ACCESSWIRE / September 10, 2018 / American Resources Corporation (OTCQB: AREC) is pleased to announce that it has achieved record coal sales and revenues for the month of August, 2018. After the record month of August, the company is announcing unaudited year-to-date gross revenue of $19,839,633, with four more months to go in the year. This result compares to $20,820,998 for the full-year 2017 gross revenue.

The increase in revenue was partially a result of a series of new mines going into production in mid-2018 (the Wayland Surface mine, the Razorblade Surface mine and Jeffery Mine), along with stronger performance at two of the company's existing underground mines (Mine #15 and Access Energy). American Resources Corporation expects the Razorblade Surface mine to continue to increase production during the remainder of 2018, with the goal of hitting full production in the fourth quarter of this year.

"We are pleased with the overall progress and growth of our company", stated Kirk Taylor, Chief Financial Officer of American Resources Corporation. "While we have been very strategic in how we expand our production from our various operations, we are starting to see the benefits of our plan take hold. We look forward to the potential for continued growth and expansion as we further execute our operating plan."

American Resources Corporation continues to focus on its growth objective by efficiently leveraging its 35 core mining permits and through identifying strategic, supplemental acquisitions. The company is committed to being one of the lowest cost operators in CAPP and throughout all its coal mining, processing, and transportation operations.
