About the Tour:

The Genesee coal mine is located southwest of Edmonton and supports Capital Power’s Genesee Generating Station. The generating station produces almost 1,300 megawatts in the provincial energy grid and annually the mine produces 5.5 million tonnes of coal from their two open pit operations.

The mine operation is a joint venture between Capital Power and Westmoreland Coal who is the mine operator. The mine has a comprehensive reclamation program and in 2016 the areas with reclamation certificates totaled 1,085 acres or 439 hectares.

Since 2008, the mine has been working to develop reforestation protocols on reclaimed mine lands that would have normally been directed into agricultural production. Initially, the University of Alberta and now currently NAIT’s Boreal Research Institute along with Chickadee Reclamation Service have played a very active role in our reforestation initiatives. Many different tree establishment techniques have been tried and the operation are seeing significant results towards our reforestation goals.
