Advancing two coking coal assets
Montem is advancing its two coking coal assets – Tent Mountain (60 million tonnes JORC) and Chinook (149 million tonnes JORC) – which both sit on Category 4 lands in Alberta, Canada.
According to Petra Capital, these projects are unaffected by the recent decision from the Government of Alberta to reinstate its coal policy which will see Category 2 lands prevented from developing open pit projects.
The broker said this was very positive for MR1’s assets in the near term.
“We highlight MR1’s projects alongside Gina Rinehart’s Grassy Mountain project as the three projects closest to production in the region, noting all three currently sit on Category 4 lands and as a result remain unaffected by these policy changes.”
