Western Coal possible takeover target


Western Coal Corp. has become a takeover target, significantly raising the company’s shares during Thursday’s trading on the Toronto Stock Exchange.

According to reports from the CBC, Florida-based Walter Energy has said it is considering purchasing Western Coal for more than $3 billion.

The deal could affect the company’s three mines in northeastern B.C., located near Chetwynd and Tumbler Ridge.
