Item 8.01 Other Events.

Section 1503 of the federal Dodd-Frank Wall Street and Consumer Protection Act requires disclosure, in a Current Report on Form 8-K, of the receipt of an imminent danger order issued by the Mine Safety and Health Administration pursuant to section 107(a) of the Federal Mine Safety and Health Act of 1977 (the “Mine Act”).

On November 18, 2011, Dominion Coal Corporation, a wholly owned subsidiary of SunCoke Energy, Inc., which is an 81-percent owned subsidiary of Sunoco, Inc., received an imminent danger order under section 107(a) of the Mine Act at its Dominion No. 36 mine located in Buchanan County, Virginia (the “Order”). The Order alleges that the roof along the belt and track entry of an intake air course is unsound and not safe for travel. No injuries occurred.

The cited area is part of previously mined land and is not in production. Immediate action was taken to cordon off the cited area to temporarily prevent entry. Corrective measures are being implemented to install additional roof supports.
