Quintette Project

Quintette is a steelmaking coal project, currently on care and maintenance, located in northeast British Columbia.

About Quintette

Quintette is located in northeast British Columbia, approximately 20 kilometres south of the town of Tumbler Ridge. The steelmaking coal mine had previously operated for nearly 18 years up until 2000.

In 2012, we completed a feasibility study to re-open Quintette. In 2013, we received a Mines Act Permit Amendment and, in 2014, we received all other required permits in order to restart the mine.

In 2014, we deferred the restart the Quintette project and placed the mine on care and maintenance due to unfavourable market conditions. The project is fully permitted and able to proceed once we see a sustained improvement in demand for steelmaking coal.
