Coal Mining in Canada to 2020

Coal Mining in Canada to 2020

Synopsis

Canada had 6.6 billion tonnes (Bnt) of coal recoverable reserves, which accounted for 0.7% of the global total at the end of 2014. Around 53% of the reserves are of bituminous grade, with sub-bituminous and lignite-grade coal accounting for the rest and the majority of these are located in the western provinces of British Columbia, Alberta and Saskatchewan.

Summary

Timetric's 'Coal Mining in Canada to 2020' report comprehensively covers Canadian reserves of coal by region, grade and proximate analysis of Canadian coal versus coal produced by other major countries, the historic and forecast data on coal production and production split by grade, type, mining method and province, coal prices, historic and forecast coal consumption and by type and exports.

The report also includes factors affecting demand for Canadian coal, profiles of major coal producing companies and information on the active, exploration and development coal projects.

The Fiscal Regime section provides information about the country’s regulatory authority, laws, licenses and other fiscal regime information such as taxes, rates and other charges applicable to the mining of the commodity in the country.

It is an essential tool for companies active in Canadian mining and for new competitors considering entering the industry.

Scope

The report contains an overview of the Canadian coal mining industry, together with the key factors affecting the industry and demand for the commodity.

It also provides information about Canadian reserves, historic and forecast data on coal production, production by grade and type, consumption and exports, the competitive landscape and active, exploration and development coal projects.

Reasons To Buy

Gain an understanding of the coal mining industry in Canada, coal reserves, historic and forecast data on coal production, coal prices, consumption and exports, demand drivers, active, exploration and development coal projects, the competitive landscape and the country's fiscal regime.

Key Highlights

  • The country produced 69.1 million tonnes (Mt) of coal in 2014 – up by 0.6% over 2013. However, its coal mining industry has been affected by weak global coal prices which forced coal mine producers such as Walter Energy, Inc. and Anglo American plc to put their mines on care and maintenance.
  • More than 90% of the deposits are scattered across the western provinces of British Columbia, Alberta and Saskatchewan, with significant amounts of bituminous, sub-bituminous and lignite grades.
  • The Canadian mining industry is governed by several provincial government departments and agencies of the provincial governments and each province has separate governing laws regulating the industry.
