Grassy Mountain Coal Project


Benga Mining Limited, a wholly owned subsidiary of Riversdale Resources Limited, is proposing to construct and operate an open-pit metallurgical coal mine near the Crowsnest Pass, approximately seven kilometres north of the community of Blairmore, in southwest Alberta. As proposed, the production capacity of the project would be a maximum of 4.5 million tonnes of clean coal per year, over a mine-life of about 25 years.

Latest update

October 27, 2020 — The public hearing for the proposed Grassy Mountain Coal Project has begun. Members of the public are welcome to observe the hearing via the live stream on YouTube.

 

Please note that the capability to post a comment directly to the Canadian Impact Assessment Registry (CIAR) will be temporarily unavailable each day while the public hearing for the Grassy Mountain Coal Project is in session between 8:45 am – 4:00 pm MDT. However, you may still submit a comment to IAAC.GrassyMountain.AEIC@canada.ca for posting to the Registry during this time. This change in the process for submitting comments has been made for technical and administrative reasons to avoid the potential for public comments and documents introduced during the public hearing process being assigned the same Canadian Impact Assessment Registry (CIAR) number.
