Item 1.04 Mine Safety - Reporting of Shutdowns and Patterns of Violations.

On July 20, 2021, Marfork Coal Company, LLC (“Marfork”), an indirect subsidiary of Alpha Metallurgical Resources, Inc., received an imminent danger order issued by the Mine Safety and Health Administration (“MSHA”) under section 107(a) of the Federal Mine Safety and Health Act of 1977 to the Marfork Processing Plant (the “Plant”), located near Whitesville, West Virginia. The order alleged that two employees were making repairs to a pre-wet screen without wearing safety belts, without the power disabled and with the machine not properly blocked against motion. The employees immediately stepped away from where they were standing, which abated the order. Further review by employees determined that power had been properly disabled. The pre-wet screen under repair was not operating when the work was being performed. No injuries occurred in connection with the alleged action, and on July 20, 2021, MSHA terminated the imminent danger order. Marfork disagrees with the imminent danger order as well as the 104(d)(1) citation and 104(d)(1) order issued in connection with the incident, and will contest or seek to vacate each.

Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
Alpha Metallurgical Resources, Inc.
