About Us

Our Work In The Industry

Since its formation in 2016, Conuma has undergone growth in production and jobs, all while working safely and responsibly.

We Deliver A High-Quality Product

The decision to re-open coal production in the Peace River Coalfield (PRC) was based on the quality of the products. The area boasts ultra-low volatile coal with highly desirable characteristics: low sulfur, low phosphorous hard coking coals that are sought by steelmakers on four continents. The coal from the PRC travels by rail on Canadian National Railway and is shipped via ocean going vessels from Ridley Terminals in Prince Rupert, B.C., one of the deepest natural harbors in the world. Conuma is now a critical part of the global steel supply chain.

We Employ First Class People

Our people are the reason we have been successful. When we made the call to re-open, the community answered. Without the dedication and cooperation of our employees, their families, our four First Nations partners and our local communities, we would not have achieved the success we have to date.

We Are a Trusted Partner

To our customers who rely on a secure, high quality and reliable supply of our product; to our employees and their families who deserve a secure and fulfilling career; and to our investors who seek security in their investment.

We Prioritize Safety

Safety is not a goal to be achieved, it is our standard of expectation. Conuma’s employees deserve to work in a safe environment and it is our collective responsibility to reinforce this expectation at all levels. The entire Conuma team is accountable for delivering the security that comes with a safe workplace.
