Castle Project

Teck Coal Limited is proposing to expand its existing Fording River Operations, a metallurgical coal mine located approximately 29 kilometres north of Elkford, British Columbia. As proposed, the Castle Project would include project-specific components such as an open pit, waste-rock storage areas, warehouses, maintenance and fueling facilities, access roads on Castle Mountain and linkages to Fording River Operations' power and utilities. The Castle Project would maintain the production capacity of 10 million tonnes per year (27,400 tonnes per day). Although the exact mine life is currently unknown, it is expected to be several decades.
