Americas Energy Company Upland Church Mine Production for January 2010

KNOXVILLE, TN--(Marketwire - February 4, 2010) - Americas Energy Company-AECo (OTCBB: AENY) announced today that AENY's mine production for the month ending January 2010 from its Upland Church Surface Mine was approximately 11,500 short tons. The mine is located in Bell County, Kentucky on AECo's 1,732+ acre Cardinal lease.

"The production from last month's operation was anticipated to be 11-12,000 short tons in good climate. So we were once again extremely pleased with Clear Development, our contract miner, for being able to perform in incredibly challenging weather conditions including record precipitations. Mr. Clear is now developing the fourth pit of coal on the Upland Church property this week and we should see some resulting February production in the next week," said Chris Headrick, President and CEO of Americas Energy Company. Mr. Headrick added, "Our contract miner on Hwy 92 (Roco Enterprises, Inc.) has completed the infrastructure work and reclamation work required to begin delivering coal and is anticipated to start production on this project within the next two weeks."
