Benga Mining Ltd. completed the acquisition of the Crowsnest Pass Complex in southwest Alberta, Canada, on August 29, 2013.

The Crowsnest Pass Complex area of southwest Alberta has a long history of coal mining and is located within 30 kilometres of the operating steelmaking coal mines in the Elk Valley, British Columbia.

The Crowsnest Pass Complex includes:

  • the Grassy Mountain Project, a promising hard coking coal development project;
  • steelmaking coal exploration opportunities, consisting of Grassy South, Grassy North, Bellevue, Adanac and Lynx Creek properties; and
  • a substantial freehold land package, which includes a significant area near the Grassy Mountain Project that is suitable for locating project-related infrastructure.
