OTTAWA, May 15, 2015 — Under the Canadian Environmental Assessment Act, 2012, the Minister of the Environment, Leona Aglukkaq, has terminated the federal environmental assessment of the proposed Robb Trend Coal Mine Expansion project in Alberta.
On April 21, 2015, the proponent, Westmoreland Coal Company, withdrew its regulatory application for the expansion of the Coal Valley Mine in the Coal Branch area near the community of Robb, Alberta. The project was referred to an environmental assessment by a review panel in October 2014.
The proponent may apply to commence a new environmental assessment process, if it determines in the future that it wants to proceed with the project.
