On October 17, 2012, a proposed Settlement Agreement was filed, on behalf of the United States and others, with the United States Bankruptcy Court for the District of Delaware in the proceeding entitled In re: Hussey Copper Corp., et al., Bkr. Case No. 11-13010 (BLS).

Pursuant to an August 2009 Consent Decree, debtors Hussey Copper Corp. and HCL Liquidation Ltd. f/k/a Hussey Copper Ltd. (“Debtors”) are jointly and severally obligated to perform a remedial design and remedial action, and to take certain other actions, related to the Breslube Penn Superfund Site, located near Pittsburgh at 84 Montour Road, Coraopolis, Pennsylvania. Debtors filed bankruptcy petitions on September 27, 2011, and the United States filed proofs of claim numbers 538 and 539 in March 2012. The proposed Settlement Agreement resolves these proofs of claims by providing for an allowed claim in the amount of $300,000 against each Debtor, as well as release of all proceeds of a related $163,507 letter of credit to the remaining parties that are implementing the 2009 Consent Decree. Those parties also filed a proof of claim that is resolved by the proposed Settlement Agreement.
