Quest Minerals & Mining Plans Initial Rehab On Cedar Grove Mine
Quest Minerals & Mining Corp., a Kentucky based operator of energy and mineral related properties, is very pleased to announce that its contract mining group, Whitestar Mining, LLC., is in the process of taking the initial steps necessary to open the Cedar Grove mines. Representatives from both Quest and Whitestar plan to convene over the weekend to finalize all terms of the mining agreement.
Whitestar CEO Dan Hampton has agreed to begin the initial phases of licensing including the preparation of relevant state and federal paperwork. “The Cedar Grove mine is in far better shape than our Pond Creek location prior to its rehabilitation. While it took five months to rehabilitate Pond Creek, we anticipate bringing Cedar Grove online in a far timelier manner. With production now running smoothly at Pond Creek, we are able to shift our focus towards bringing Cedar Grove into production mode. In addition, the mining conditions at the new site are ideal. The seam is 50 inches in height and very little rehab work is expected to be required prior to begin mining. I know that Cedar Grove will be a great mine,” Said Whitestar CEO Dan Hampton.
Eugene J.Chiaramonte Jr. President of Quest Minerals and Mining Corp. stated, “I am extremely pleased with Whitestar’s ability to produce coal at our Pond Creek location and have absolute confidence in their ability to bring our Cedar Grove property online in the near future. Initial reports reveal that the Cedar Grove mines house a higher quality, higher value Met coal than what is currently being prospected at Pond Creek. In response to this finding, I am very excited about the opportunity to bring this mine into full production and enter into a new and lucrative segment of the coal market by doing so.”
