Chetwynd Coal Mining Update

The industry magazine, Canadian Mining Journal, says a privately held Vancouver company has decided, to move directly into the environmental assessment process, of its Central South property west of Chetwynd.
First Coal Corporation had been planning a first phase, involving a small mine operating at an annual production rate of 245 thousand tonnes of metallurgical coal.
That phase would have then been followed by the EA process, for proposed production of up to 3 million tonnes per year.
Now however, the EA process will go ahead immediately, and include consultations with local area communities, and Treaty 8 First Nations.
The journal report says it will take between 18 and 20 months to complete.
It says First Coal also plans test mining for this month, using a remote controlled underground method, unique in Canada.
