Line Creek’s mine, plant operations resumed

Operations at Line Creek's mine and plant have resumed following significant progress on the remediation plan following landslide.

A spokesman from Teck Coal Limited advised the public on Aug. 4 that operations at Line Creek’s mine and plant have resumed following significant progress on the remediation plan that was implemented as a result of a July 11 landslide.

Nic Milligan, manager of community and aboriginal affairs at Teck, said the landslide event was not related to mining activity.

“Major components involved in the remediation plan include restoring road access, debris removal and new cable belt bridge installation,” he said.

“All work was undertaken in a manner that prioritized employee and contractor safety, and was protective of the environment.”
