Our Grassy Mountain Coal Project (the Project) is a proposed steelmaking coal mine that will be developed on a legacy mining area, 7km north from Blairmore in the Crowsnest Pass, Alberta. The Project is projected to produce around 93 million tonnes of product coal over its currently proposed 24-year mine life. Currently, the Project is being reviewed by the provincial and federal regulators and pending a favourable regulatory decision, is expected to start production in Q1 2021.
Riversdale Resources is an Australian mining company focused on developing steelmaking coal projects with the potential to supply steel to manufacturers around the world. Our team is comprised of global experts in the fields of engineering, environment and management of proposed projects like ours. We are committed to using innovative, sustainable and mindful best practices to develop, operate and reclaim the proposed Grassy Mountain Coal Project.
If regulatory approval is given, the proposed Grassy Mountain Coal Project is expected to bring significant economic stimulus to our communities and to the province of Alberta. It is expected to bring back an industry that is historic and significant to the area and that hasn’t been active for over 30 years, as well as jobs, community investment opportunities, increase the commercial tax base and stimulate the local business community.
We, the team at Riversdale, understand that successful and healthy communities, are diverse communities. We are committed to working with our local communities, government, Indigenous peoples and fellow business owners to ensure our legacy is a sustainable one, now, and into the future.
