The TOR are consistent with the company’s expectation for coal projects in Alberta, covering the assessment of key environmental elements, historical resources, traditional ecological knowledge and land use of Indigenous People, public health and safety, socio-economics, mitigation measures, residual impacts, and monitoring.
The company is targeting production from the Tent Mountain Mine in 2023 following project approval.
“Important milestone for the mine restart”
The company will now submit an EIA report that examines the environmental and socio-economic effects of re-starting the Tent Mountain Mine.
Montem managing director and chief executive officer Peter Doyle said: “This is an important milestone for Montem, allowing us to complete the application to restart Tent Mountain.
“Most of the work required to support the application has been done, and we will move rapidly to complete remaining reports for the EIA.
“We expect to lodge the EIA, mine licence applications and accompanying permit amendments later this year.”
