British Columbia Mine Reclamation Symposium

Reclaiming for Wildlife at Line Creek Densmore, Brent; Townsend, Don

Abstract

The Line Creek Mine is operated by the Crows Nest Resources Ltd., a subsidiary of Shell Canada Resources. The operation is located in southeastern British Columbia in the Elk Valley northeast of Fernie. Current production is approximately 2 million metric tonnes per year of metallurgical and thermal coal. Line Ridge, where the Mine is located, has been classified as spring/summer/fan range for Bighorn sheep and elk by the B. C. Fish and Wildlife Branch, TAESCO studies, and Crows Nest Resources Ltd. radio-telemetry programs. A number of wildlife studies, undertaken by Crows Nest Resources Ltd. in 1981, are now yielding results which can be applied directly to the reclamation program.
