The Tenas Project will use a ‘small mine’ approach, which would see annual production of between approximately 240,000 to 900,000 metric tonnes over an estimated 40-year period. The metallurgical or steelmaking coal would be shipped on the CN rail line to Prince Rupert’s Ridley Terminal for export to steel mills.
HEALTH AND SAFETY
Safety is a core value of our company. We believe that all activities can be completed with zero harm to personnel and that all incidents and injuries are preventable. We will provide resources to manage health and safety and expect all employees and contractors to share in the responsibility.
We acknowledge and respect the unceded rights, title, interests, culture and aspirations of the Wet’suwet’en to 22,000 square km of traditional territory. In April 2016, we signed a Communications and Engagement Agreement as an initial, formal step in our commitment to the Wet’suwet’en.
We will ensure that our activities are responsible and protective of the environment. Our design and operational activities adhere to the mitigation hierarchy to avoid and minimize impacts, restore on-site and offset, where necessary.
Integrity is fundamental to how we operate. We will engage with the community and stakeholders with the aim of ensuring the socio-economic priorities and goals are understood and addressed.
Community meetings in advance of the regulatory review process are planned for the Spring and Fall of 2018. There will be additional opportunities for public input and review in 2019 during the regulatory review process.
We invite the community to contact us.
