About Coal Mountain

Coal Mountain Operations is located about 30 kilometres southeast of Sparwood in southeastern British Columbia.

Coal Mountain produces steelmaking coal – also called metallurgical coal or coking coal — which is used to make steel. We export the processed coal by sea to the Asia-Pacific region and elsewhere. This involves the shipment of the steelmaking coal from the mine site to bulk port terminals in Vancouver by rail. It is then transferred to larger seagoing vessels, which carry it to our target markets.

Although no steelmaking coal production was planned for Coal Mountain Operations in 2019, the operation produced 30,000 tonnes in the first quarter of the year and anticipates a total of approximately 50,000 tonnes prior to closure in the second quarter of 2019.
