Atrum has specifically targeted Western Canada as its initial project focus due to its:
(i) abundance of high quality coking and metallurgical coal;
(ii) well developed rail and port infrastructure with excess capacity;
(iii) access to deep sea ports;
(iv) competitive shipping distance to Asia; and
(v) positive government stance on mining.
Atrum plans to acquire the Elan hard coking coal project in Alberta, Canada which has an exploration target of 745Mt of coal and is adjacent to Riversdale Resources’ Grassy Mountain Project. Atrum is also exploring and developing the world’s largest anthracite field in British Columbia, Canada.
