Carbon Creek Coal Mine Project

Postby Jeff Mohr » Tue Jan 22, 2013 4:59 pm

The Canadian Environmental Assessment Agency must determine whether a federal environmental assessment is required for the proposed Carbon Creek Metallurgical Coal Mine Project in B.C. To assist it in making its decision, the Agency is seeking comments from the public on the project and its potential effects on the environment.
Cardero Coal Ltd is proposing the development of an open-pit metallurgical coal mine located approximately 60 kilometers northwest of Chetwynd and 40 kilometers west of Hudson’s Hope. The production rate of the proposed project would be 4.1 million metric tonnes of metallurgical coal per year and the expected mine life would be 20 years. The proposed project would require open-pit surface mining followed in the future by combined open-pit surface and underground mining.

Please click on the link in the forwarded message below for a map of the location and more details about how to comment. The deadline for comments is February 4.

Thanks for posting this information. I also saw this in the local news.
I have traveled into this area via the Johnson Creek FSR & Carbon Creek FSR a couple times by truck.

Here's an image of where the mine would be situated.

It will not effect any of our current atv trails in the Hudson Hope area. but it will make this a busy area.
Looks like they will be transporting the Coal by Barge to Mackenzie.

You can check out the project at the below link.
