At Telkwa Coal, we are committed to working with the Wet’suwet’en and our local community to responsibly and respectfully develop the Tenas Project

Telkwa Coal Limited is proposing to develop the Tenas Project, a steelmaking (or metallurgical) coal mine in British Columbia's northwest region. Telkwa Coal is 100% owned by Allegiance Coal.

We look forward to having an open dialogue with our neighbours, working to address community questions, and developing the Tenas Project responsibly and respectfully.

It's important that we listen to provincial health guidance to ensure we are doing our part to protect the health of our communities. In this regard, TCL has implemented several actions that will remain in place until we receive further direction from public health officials:

  • We suspended our community engagement from mid March-June 2020. Since this time we've limited in-person engagement, and when doing so have followed provincial health guidance
  • We closed our local Telkwa office and corporate office in Vancouver in mid-March 2020. We re-opened both offices in early June, in accordance with provincial guidance.
  • Most employees are working from home, where they are available virtually or by phone.
  • We are working with our business partners to ensure that any field work is completed with extra precautions.

The Tenas Project is located in the Bulkley Nechako region, 25 km south of Smithers and 7 km southwest of Telkwa, BC. The Project will produce approximately 775,000 to 825,000 tonnes of steelmaking coal annually, with a mine life of about 25 years including construction, operations, and reclamation phases.
