WATCH MCOAL'S VIDEO OF 'SWEET HOME ALABAMA'

(It may take several minutes for the video to down load.)

The following quotations are transcribed from the video produced to attract Mcoal investors.

  • Narrator: they(NovaDx) came across the Rosa Coal Mine a high quality metallurgic coal opportunity they just couldn't resist. You could say Novadx has found a 'Sweet Home in Alabama.'

  • Neil McDonald: One of the reasons we elected to go with this particular project is Alabama is quite mining friendly, particularly for coal mining.

  • Mark Reynolds: …..(our team) managed to bring this (mine) into production in 18 months which is an exceptionally fast pace, at the same time we have had great cooperation from the Alabama officials"

  • Neil MCDonald: I can't say enough for the regulatory officials we had to deal with in the permitting process ………..all the people that have been involved in this project to this point. They understand coal, they understand the coal business. It makes it a lot easier to start a business like this. That was one of the reasons we decided to come down here in the first place.

Now read about the ongoing Southern Environmental Law Center case against Alabama Department of Environmental Management involving Rosa Mine
