Robb Trend Coal Mine Expansion Project

Coal Valley Resources Inc. is proposing to expand its Coal Valley Mine in the Coal Branch area of Alberta. The project, located near the community of Robb, would be approximately 50 km in length and would include portions of the Pembina River, Embarras River and the Erith River.

On July 6, 2012, the Minister of the Environment designated this project and the screening-type environmental assessment to continue under the former Canadian Environmental Assessment Act.

As per the Cabinet Directive on Improving the Performance of the Regulatory System for Major Resource Projects, the Canadian Environmental Assessment Agency is responsible for managing the federal environmental assessment process for major resource projects.


Latest update

May 15, 2015 - The Minister of the Environment terminated the environmental assessment process of the designated project at the request of the proponent.
