The decrease is mainly related to decreased coal related revenues. Total revenues and other income for the first quarter 2015 increased 37% due primarily to increased aggregates related revenues and oil and gas related revenues as a result of the VantaCore construction aggregates and Sanish Field oil and gas acquisitions completed in the fourth quarter of 2014. These increases were partially offset by a decrease in coal related revenues as compared to the first quarter 2014. Distributable cash flow increased by 37%, mainly due to timing of cash payments received by aggregates related business and approximately $5.2 million related to the sale of some minerals rights and assets.
For the quarter, the company announced coal production of 11,108 tons compared to 12,252 tons a year ago. Average coal royalty revenue per ton was $3.35 compared to $3.55 a year ago.
