Claire Rogers, Community Relations Manager with Benga Mining Limited, provided Council with an update on the Grassy Mountain Coal Project at a special meeting on May 2. Benga Mining is a subsidiary of Riversdale Resources.

The next update from Riversdale is scheduled for June 27 at 1:30 p.m. in Council chambers.

Regulatory update

Riversdale is still awaiting the appointment of a review panel.

If the Alberta Energy Regulator (AER) and the Canadian Environment Assessment Agency (CEAA) establish a joint panel, it will have three members, two provincial representatives from the AER appointed by the Chief Hearing Commissioner and one federal member appointed by the Minister of Environment. The panel will be responsible for reviewing the Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA), leading the public input period, requesting additional information from Riversdale and ultimately providing a recommendation to the Ministry of Environment
.
A regulatory decision is expected in the winter or spring of 2019.

Community update

The Riversdale team currently has 13 employees. By the end of 2018, they expect to have hired an additional 12 people. They have also rented a second office space along 20 Avenue, Blairmore, to accommodate their growing team.

In May, Riversdale will be hosting information booths around town and will be announcing those locations soon.

Employees at Riversdale participate in a new volunteer program initiated by the company where staff are given time each month to volunteer for local organizations, initiatives or events of their choice. Groups needing assistance can reach out to Riversdale and they will do their best to match them with someone on the team. If an organization is interested in engaging a volunteer from Riversdale, they may contact the office at 403-753-5160.
