GREEN RIVER COMMENTS ON RESULTS OF U.S. ATTORNEYS' INVESTIGATION

 HENDERSON, Ky., Aug. 26 /PRNewswire/ -- Commenting on the indictment handed up yesterday against Shirley Pritchett and the guilty plea entered today by Eddie R. Brown, Thomas L. VanKirk, spokesman for Green River Coal Co., Inc., made this statement:
 "Green River is disheartened that the exhaustive investigation conducted by United States attorneys in Indiana and Kentucky found additional facts to support an indictment which suggests criminal wrongdoing on the part of a prominent former employee of our largest customer, Big Rivers Electric Corporation.
 "However, we are pleased that the investigation has not suggested any criminal wrongdoing on the part of Green River or any of our current or former officers or directors. In fact, the indictments suggest that any agreements to make unlawful payments were restricted to agreements among Pritchett, Brown and the former Big Rivers employee.
 "Since this matter is the subject of criminal cases, and since the company is involved in bankruptcy proceedings, which in part deal with the status of Green River's contract with Big Rivers Electric, the company will not make any further comments at this time."
