Contura Energy completed the previously announced acquisition of several core assets from Alpha Natural Resources (ANR), which was a key step for Alpha to emerge from Chapter 11 bankruptcy. Contura will be a private, Tennessee-based company with affiliate mining operations across multiple major coal basins in Pennsylvania, Virginia, West Virginia and Wyoming. It also purchased Alpha’s interest in the Dominion Terminal Associates coal export terminal in eastern Virginia. Contura will be led by former Alpha CEO Kevin Crutchfield and it will have a workforce of more than 2,200 former Alpha employees.
