Public Comment Period on the Telkwa Coal Mine Now Open
The Telkwa coal mine, known as the Tenas Project, is moving ahead in the environmental assessment process. It is proposed near the Telkwa River which flows into the Skeena. What impact could this have on fish?
We encourage you to learn more about the mine at a virtual Open House happening today or next week on June 23rd.

The public comment period on the mine's draft Application Information Requirements is also now open from June 8th - July 23rd.
The draft Application Information Requirements (AIR) can be viewed on the Environmental Assessment Office website here.
The AIR is what tells the proponent, Telkwa Coal Ltd, what studies need to be done before filing their project application so it is important to review the requirements and let the government know if there are gaps and other research you think the proponent should be doing.
Stay tuned for more information and opportunities to get involved as we work to review the Application Information Requirements and share potential gaps.
