Teck’s Greenhills operation is located eight kilometres northeast of the community of Elkford, in southeastern British Columbia.
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 used to produce steel. 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 14 years.
