Peoactive Investors reported that Pacific American Coal Ltd is focused on metallurgical coal projects in North America and has its flagship Elko Coking Coal Project in British Columbia, Canada. The wholly-owned Elko project is in East Kootenay Coal Basin, in a known coking coal mining area. The three tenements are adjoining and collectively makeup 2,995 hectares of logged land.

A 2018 exploration program at the Elko project included nine holes, with 3,451 metres drilled.

Project resources at Elko currently sit at 257 million tonnes, as defined under the JORC code.

Of these, 19.2 million tonnes are measured resources, 57 million tonnes are indicated resources and 181.3 million tonnes are inferred resources.

Elko is suited to underground mining and is in East Kootenay basin’s Crowsnest coal field, near established infrastructure and supportive local communities.

Coal from the Elko region has previously been tested and confirmed to contained coking properties sought by South-East Asian steel mills.
