MINE SAFETY DISCLOSURES
Section 1503 of the Dodd-Frank Act contains reporting requirements regarding coal or other mine safety. In conjunction with our acquisition of Tronox Limited’s (“Tronox”) (NYSE:TROX) trona and trona-based exploring, mining, processing, producing, marketing and selling business (the “Alkali Business”) on September 1, 2017, we acquired and now operate a mine at the Green River, Wyoming facility. Our mine is subject to regulation by the Mine Safety and Health Administration (“MSHA”) under the Federal Mine Safety and Health Act of 1977 (the “Mine Act”), and is therefore subject to these reporting requirements. Presented in the table below is information regarding certain mining safety and health citations which MSHA has issued with respect to our operation as required by the Dodd-Frank Act. In evaluating this information, consideration should be given to the fact that citations and orders can be contested and appealed, and in that process, may be reduced in severity, penalty amount or sometimes dismissed (vacated) altogether.
The letters used as column headings in the table below correspond to the explanations provided underneath the table as to the information set forth in each column with respect to the numbers of violations, orders, citations or dollar amounts, as the case may be, during the first quarter of 2021 unless otherwise indicated.
