Additional Information

Purpose

The purpose of this layer is to provide a strategic approach when considering coal resource development in the northeast of BC. Information in this layer represents Regional Coal Agreements signed by various BC ministries and First Nations.

The layer includes the following three coal agreement areas:

  1. Coal Land Reserve: The area established as a coal land reserve under section 21 of the Coal Act in which no person may explore for, develop or produce coal, and no coal license or lease may be issued.

  2. Coal Area: The geographic area identified as the “Coal Area” in Schedule 1 of the Regional Coal Agreement is the area in which the signatory First Nations will be consulted with regarding coal development at levels designated within the Regional Coal Agreement (RCA). It is within this area that the RCA applies to allow for the strategic approach to coal development in the Northeast.

  3. Tumbler Ridge Zone: Those lands identified as the “Tumbler Ridge Zone” in Schedule 1 of the Regional Coal Agreement is a specific area within the entire coal area of special interest. This area is where coal development is emphasized.
