Joint review panel concludes review of Grassy Mountain Coal project

June 17, 2021… The Joint Review Panel for Benga Mining Limited's Grassy Mountain Coal project has completed its review and submitted its final report to the Minister of Environment and Climate Change Canada.

The panel, in its capacity as a hearing panel for the Alberta Energy Regulator, found the project is not in the public interest and has denied the provincial applications.

"The panel's decision reflects the AER's commitment to making evidence-based and risk-informed decisions in the public interest," said Laurie Pushor, president and CEO of the Alberta Energy Regulator.

For more information, review the panel's news release. The report, which includes an executive summary, is available on the AER website. Project information is available on the Impact Assessment Agency of Canada's (IAAC) project registry.
