Our Greenhills operation is located 8 kilometres northeast of the community of Elkford, in southeastern British Columbia. Greenhills is comprised of approximately 11,800 hectares of coal lands.
Greenhills is operated under a joint venture agreement among Teck, POSCO Canada Limited (“POSCAN”) and POSCAN’s parent, POSCO. Pursuant to the agreement, Teck has an 80% interest in the joint venture while POSCAN has a 20% interest.
Coal mined at Greenhills is primarily steelmaking coal, although a small amount of thermal coal is also produced. The current annual production capacities of the mine and preparation plant (on a 100% basis) are 5.2 and 5.2 million tonnes of clean coal, respectively.
Proven and probable reserves at Greenhills are projected to support mining at current planned production rates for a further 15 years.
