The story of Alliance begins in 1971 when MAPCO Inc., then a Fortune 500 diversified energy company, entered the coal-production business, acquiring the Dotiki mine. This underground operation in Webster County, Kentucky, soon became, and remains to this day, one of the most productive coal mines in the country. By the time the company reached its silver anniversary, MAPCO Coal owned five mining complexes in three states — Kentucky, Illinois, and Maryland. It also owned the Mt. Vernon Facility, a rail-to-barge loading terminal on the Ohio River. Located in Indiana, the Mt. Vernon facility is capable of handling 8 million tons of coal per year. In 1996, management formed Alliance Coal Corporation and led a buyout of MAPCO Inc.'s coal operations with the financial support of The Beacon Group. Within two years, Alliance acquired Hopkins County Coal, a surface/underground operation in Hopkins County, Kentucky, and opened MC Mining, an underground mine in Pike County, Kentucky. In 1998, Alliance sold 15.1 million tons of coal and was recognized as the sixth-largest coal producer in the eastern United States. During 1999, Alliance Resource Partners, L.P. was formed, and after completion of its initial public offering as a publicly-traded master limited partnership, acquired the coal operations of Alliance Coal Corporation. The new company soon broke ground for a new underground mining complex in Gibson County, Indiana. Production began at Gibson County Coal the following year. ARLP began a $30 million extension of its Pattiki mine in southern Illinois during 2000. Construction of a new mine shaft and ancillary facilities began in 2001 at the Dotiki mining complex. Both of these projects were completed during the second quarter of 2003 and positioned Alliance Coal to meet increasing demand for its coal. In 2002, management purchased all of The Beacon Group's interest in ARLP. The acquisition was not funded or secured with any of Alliance's assets.

Altius is a natural resource project generation and royalty business based in the province of Newfoundland & Labrador. Altius is focused on the mining and resources sector through prospect generation, the creation and acquisition of royalties and investments. The Corporation has a strong financial position with approximately $194 million in cash and liquid investments and no debt. Altius owns an effective 0.3% net smelter return in the producing Voisey’s Bay nickel-copper-cobalt mine located in Labrador, Canada and has numerous active mineral exploration agreements principally in eastern Canada targeting a variety of mineral commodities. In addition, the Corporation holds investments in junior exploration and development stage companies. The Company prefers to generate partnerships or corporate structures related to the opportunities it generates, which results in the Corporation carrying minority and non-operating project or equity interests and/or royalty interests. Since inception in 1997, our business model and operating philosophy have consistently delivered increased value for shareholders of Altius through cyclical market conditions. The company has built a solid reputation around its percentage of successful mineral project generation initiatives that it intends to further build upon. While the market sentiment for the natural resources sector was somewhat turbulent in 2009 our Company is well prepared to embrace the opportunities of market volatility and/or a down-cycle. Going forward Altius intends to grow its business through its; 1) organic mineral exploration business focused in eastern Canada, 2) exportation of its proven prospect generator business model to other choice jurisdictions, and 3) to prudently deploy its capital in royalty-like investment opportunities throughout the minerals sector. Altius prospered through the last bear cycle because its business plan inherently preserves capital structure and manages risk, thus there are many reasons to be optimistic about the future of Altius and its expanding business strategy.

The Posse deposit is located in an area of excellent infrastructure located some 35 km NE of Yamana’s Chapada open pit Cu-Au operation, 105 km NE of Serra Grande’s underground Au mine, 105 km NNW of Anglo American’s nickel laterite project (in construction), 95 km NW of Votarintim’s Niquelandia nickel laterite mine and approximately 60 kms NE of Yamana’s Pilar Au project (in feasibility). Grid power to the site was established during the previous open pit mining operation and the Serra da Mesa hydro-electric dam lies 35 km to the east.
American Colloid Company is a leading producer and supplier of high-quality Wyoming bentonites, North Dakota leonardites, and humic acid products. These products are highly beneficial to agriculture, agronomic and horticulture applications. In agriculture and horticulture our products are beneficial as flow control agents, animal feed pelletizing, and agricultural carriers. These products absorb liquid active herbicides and pesticides onto their surfaces that help to control dispersion rates, limit drift and leach ability as these products are applied to cropland. In agronomy these leonardite/humic acid products stimulate plant growth, improve the availability of nutrients and other trace minerals to plants. They improve soil properties such as aeration, permeability, water filtration, holding capacity and nutrient uptake. This is especially beneficial where rainfall and moisture retention are minimal.
Anatolia Minerals is an emerging gold producer and leading minerals explorer in Turkey. The Company discovered and is developing the Çöpler Gold Project, which hosts gold reserves and resources in excess of 6 million ounces and remains open. Construction for the initial oxide phase at Çöpler is fully permitted and funded. First gold pour is slated for the 4th quarter 2010. Growth opportunities for Anatolia Minerals drive from a pipeline of precious and base metals properties and a strategic alliance with Çalik Mining -- a member company of a leading Turkish conglomerate. Near term expansion of both oxide and sulfide potential at Çöpler are being advanced. Longer-term prospects include two nearby copper/gold porphyry deposits -- Cevizlidere and Karakartal - and numerous grassroots prospects throughout Turkey. Anatolia Minerals is dedicated to ethical and responsible mining and exploration practices, with its employees committed to implementing and continuously improving standards for safety, health, environmental and community stewardship.
