The world’s accelerating electrification and industrialisation requires more steel. For factories and buildings, electric vehicles, and renewable power generation plants. It takes around 220 tonnes of coal to make one single wind turbine. More steel will require more hard coking coal because you can’t make steel without it. There’s no economical alternative and won’t be for decades. At Valory Resources, we’re serving a cleaner future, delivering a critical resource for the way we want to live while giving back to the host communities in which we work through investment and job creation.

We want to create value for stakeholders and shareholders by safely producing hard coking coal for the steel industry. We want to be a positive part of the Grande Cache and Alberta communities. We want to make minimum impact and leave the site completely rehabilitated when we finish.
