30 CFR 1206.265 - Value enhancement of marketable coal.
If, prior to use, sale, or other disposition, the lessee enhances the value of coal after the coal has been placed in marketable condition in accordance with § 1206.257(h) of this subpart, the lessee shall notify ONRR that such processing is occurring or will occur. The value of that production shall be determined as follows:
(a) A value established for the feedstock coal in marketable condition by application of the provisions of § 1206.257(c)(2)(i-iv) of this subpart; or,
(b) In the event that a value cannot be established in accordance with subsection (a), then the value of production will be determined in accordance with § 1206.257(c)(2)(v) of this subpart and the value shall be the lessee's gross proceeds accruing from the disposition of the enhanced product, reduced by ONRR-approved processing costs and procedures including a rate of return on investment equal to two times the Standard and Poor's BBB bond rate applicable under § 1206.259(b)(2)(v) of this subpart.
