Canada is home to 24 permitted coal mines – 19 of which are currently in operation. More than 90% of Canada’s coal deposits are located in western provinces, in British Columbia, Alberta and Saskatchewan. British Columbia has 10 mines. Alberta has 9 mines. Saskatchewan has 3 mines. Nova Scotia has 2 mines. Complete List of Claims, Mineral Properties, Deposits & Mining Projects For Sale in Alberta. Lease, Option, & Joint Venture Available.

  The mine mostly supplied Canadian National Railway with fuel for their steam locomotives, and closed in when the railway’s conversion to diesel was complete. It was re-opened in by Cardinal River Coal, now owned by Teck, who ships the coal by rail to Vancouver and then by ship to markets around the world. The phase-out of coal power in Alberta will involve the retirement of over 40 per cent of Alberta’s installed capacity and the de facto phase-out of local thermal coal mines. Alberta's coal phase-out is part of the province's wider Climate Leadership Plan. To implement the phase-out, Alberta's NDP government relies on three pillars.

RMCMI is a nonprofit corporation dedicated to the promotion of western coal through education. Member states are Arizona, Colorado, Montana, New Mexico, North Dakota, Texas, Utah . Mines in Operation The fuel for three of our coal-fired plants west of Edmonton, Alberta comes from the Highvale Mine, the largest of our surface coal mines, adjacent to our plants. The Whitewood Mine stopped mining operations in and reclamation at this mine is complete.

In the Februentry of “Journal of a Journey over Land from Buckingham House to the Rocky Mountains in & 3 by Peter Fidler,” Fidler describes his coal discovery.

The bulk of the extractable coal in Alberta rests in the Lower and Upper Cretaceous seams that are generally found near the surface.

These occur in the western or inner belt of the Rocky Mountain Foothills and contain the most important deposits of bituminous coal in the province. Much of Alberta’s resource wealth has been tied to its geology. According to the Coal Association of Canada, there are 24 permitted coal mines throughout Canada, 19 of which currently operate.

The vast majority of the country's coal deposits can be found in British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan and Nova Scotia.

The oldest coal deposits became part of the Front Ranges and foothills of the Rocky Mountains as those got pushed towards the sky 80 to 55 million years ago. The coal beds under today’s plains are younger and of a lower grade—good enough for electricity production, but too impure for firing blast furnaces used in steelmaking.
