Comments: The proposed Project would involve developing a new open pit coal mine in north-western BC located about 90 km southeast of Iskut. With a production capacity of approximately 8,200 tonnes per day of clean coal, and a mine footprint of about 4000 ha, including an open pit of about 730 ha, the mine would produce about 3 million tonnes of coal for about 25 years. Transportation of the coal would be by rail to Ridley Terminals in Prince Rupert. The proposed Project would also include constructing a 147 km extension of an existing railway from its current terminus to the mine site.
