Atrum Coal’s wholly-owned subsidiary Kuro Coal Ltd has completed a JORC resource estimate for the Elan South area within the Elan hard coking coal project in Alberta, Canada.
The indicated resource is 7 million t and inferred is 29 million t.
Managing Director, Max Wang commented: “Elan South is progressing on schedule and we are expecting that the exploration planned in 2018 will establish Elan South as a substantial hard coking coal project.”
Atrum reported that there is an addition exploration target of 200 million t.
The resource estimates confirm that Elan South has substantial emplacements of shallow hard coking coal.
Looking to 2018, the company intends to focus on extensive definition drilling, large diameter core sampling, confirmatory quality analysis, engineering design, and baseline environmental studies to proactively accommodate future mining permits.
