Cline Group's Donkin coal mine to commence operation in January

Cline Group LLC's Canada-based Donkin underground coal mine will commence operation before the end of January and is aimed at producing mostly metallurgical coal, along with a smaller amount of steam coal, Coal Age reported Jan. 19.

After much delay last year, it is now expected to have up to 120 full-time workers and is projected to ramp up coal production to roughly 2.75 million tonnes annually by the end of 2017 or early 2018, said the report.

Most of the metallurgical coal is expected to be shipped overseas, while some of the steam coal is expected to be purchased by Nova Scotia Power Inc.

Donkin is believed to have sufficient reserves to last for at least 20 years, wrote Coal Age.
