LONDON (Reuters) - Western Coal Corp said it was aware of a proposed class action lawsuit that alleges inaccurate disclosure in the group's second-quarter 2007 financial report.

"The company believes these allegations are without merit and intends to vigorously defend them as well as the plaintiff's attempt to obtain court approval to proceed with the action," Western Coal said.

The lawsuit started in the Ontario Superior Court of Justice on November 20.

Western Coal produces coal from mines in British Columbia and West Virginia.
