Atrum Coal Limited, along with its joint venture partner Japan Oil, Gas and Metals National Corp. (JOGMEC), have provided an operational update for the company’s Panorama North Anthracite Project (Panorama North), located in British Columbia, Canada.

Recently appointed Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer, Max Wang commented: “Following our initial exploration in 2016, we have completed our second drilling programme at Panorama North. We are happy to announce that we have intersected multiple thick, near surface anthracite coal seams. “We have now completed the field work, with coal samples being sent for testing. Our exploration team led by Senior Geologist, Daniel Campbell will review the results and complete a structural interpretation of the Panorama North deposit. Once again, we are thankful to our Aboriginal partners for their support in the field work.”

Exploration and drilling at Panorama North is an area to the west of Groundhog North. In the 1980s a number of trenches encountered anthracite, but no drilling was undertaken. During 2016, the company formed a Joint Venture with JOGMEC in order to undertake a preliminary exploration programme, including diamond core drilling, and extensive surface mapping of coal and rock outcrop.
