Raven Mine Action Final
On April 4, 2016 the BC Environmental Assessment Office (EAO) notified Compliance Coal Corporation that the EAO had made the decision to terminate the Raven Coal Mine Project Environmental Assessment (EA) review.
In part, the EAO decision was based on an assessment that continuation of an EA at this time would be neither efficient nor appropriate given the timing and readiness of the project to proceed with the EA.
In a nutshell, the EAO decision to terminate the Raven Coal Mine Project EA spells the end of the road for this project.
Over the past six years a record number of individuals have submitted written comments as part of the EA process and participated in grass roots action in opposition to the project.
The cumulative effects of First Nations, local governments, numerous organizations, and thousands of individuals raising their concerns regarding the ill-conceived Raven Coal Mine Project has made a significant difference in the final outcome.
Thank you for your generous support over the past six years.
