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 a joint venture partnership with 90% owned by Allegiance Coal, and 10% by Itochu Corporation of Japan.
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:
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.
