Steelmaking Coal: An Important Resource for Strong Economies

Almost everything that makes modern life possible uses steel components – and that means using steelmaking coal to produce them. This rare but incredibly important resource is only found in a few places worldwide, and it plays a vital role in the growth of global economies.

Canada is the world’s third largest exporter of metallurgical coal, after Australia and the United States. While some global steelmaking coal basins produce for domestic markets only or are in regions that make export difficult, the metallurgic coal resources in Alberta are well-positioned geographically for export.

At Cabin Ridge, we believe that this presents a unique opportunity to expand Alberta’s reputation, explore its economic potential, and provide the world with a critical resource.
