Conuma Coal Resources Ltd, a subsidiary of West Virginia-based ERP Compliant Fuels, expects to produce approximately 4 million nt (3.63 million mt) of metallurgical and PCI coal in 2017 at three mines in British Columbia, Canada according to a recent press release.
 
Conuma has restarted the Brule and Wolverine mines acquired in September 2016 from Walter Canada. Willow Creek is the third mine in that purchase. The Willow Creek mine is presently idle but is currently scheduled for a July restart.
 
In 2017, Brule is targeted to produce about 2.4 million nt (2.18 million mt), Wolverine about 1.3 million nt (1.18 million mt), and Willow Creek approximately 300,000 nt (272,100 mt).  Annual Willow Creek production is projected at 700,000 nt (444,430 mt) for future years.
Management stated that Conuma is building operations that can withstand price fluctuations, operate on limited debt, and operate efficiently with the use of latest industry technology and operational processes. A crusher system installed at Brule, for example, will improve the load per truck or rail car.
 
Conuma's coal is being shipped to Asian markets through the Ridley Terminal in Prince Rupert, British Columbia.
