Coal for steel
Coking coal, also known as metallurgical coal, is a vital ingredient in steel production for building infrastructure such as bridges, rail, ships and medical equipment. Steel is also an essential material for clean energy projects including solar and wind power.
Our approach to sustainability
Elan Hard Coking
The Elan Hard Coking Coal (HCC) Project hosts a current JORC Resource estimate of 486 Mt (7 Mt Measured, 228 Mt Indicated and 252 Mt Inferred) and growing. Comprehensive quality testing, combined with review of substantial historical testwork data for the broader Elan Project, has confirmed Tier 1 HCC quality. The Elan South area is located approximately 13 km from an existing rail line with significant excess capacity, providing direct rail access to export terminals in Vancouver and Prince Rupert.
