Alliance Resource Partners (ARLP -2.4%) says its Pontiki mine in Kentucky is expected to close by year end, and its Excel Mining subsidiary issued Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification notices to all employees at the complex.

ARLP does not expect the mine closure to have a material impact on 2013 financial results.
