Introduction

Montem Resources Limited (ASX: MR1) owns the Chinook Properties, which comprise prospective metallurgical coal leases and freehold titles in southern Alberta and British Columbia, Canada. These properties are located in an active mining district and in close proximity to key mines of Teck Resources, a major exporter of Canadian coking coal.

Four of the Chinook Properties contain previous open-cut and underground mines. Montem Resources plans to re-establish mining at the Tent Mountain open-cut mine while exploring development opportunities at the other Chinook Properties.  The objective for Montem Resources is  to develop a regionally integrated coking coal mining complex in the Crowsnest Pass region, leveraging central infrastructure, and focusing on low cost development of open-cut coking coal mines. Montem Resources has brought together a team of technical and management specialists with extensive experience in coal mining in Canada and Australia, led by Peter Doyle and Bob Bell.

Offer overview

Montem Resources Limited is seeking to raise between $15 million and $20 million and will have an estimated undiluted market capitalisation of approximately $55.8 million at maximum subscription. 

The funds raised under the Offer will be primarily directed to:

  • Conduct exploration and engineering studies to complete a Definitive Feasibility Study and environmental studies at Tent Mountain mine to facilitate permit amendment;
  • exploration and pre-feasibility studies across other Chinook Properties.
  • Working capital; and
  • Cost of the offer

The Properties

The Chinook Properties are six discrete projects located on the front ranges of the Canadian Rocky Mountains in southwestern Alberta, Canada (with Tent Mountain also straddling the Alberta-British Columbia border) and are mostly brownfield projects having supported prior mining. They are:

  • Tent Mountain mine
  • Chinook South Project
  • Chinook North Project
  • Vicary-Racehorse Project
  • Isola and Oldman (exploration projects)

Resource estimates have been completed for the Tent Mountain, Chinook North, Chinook South and Vicary - Racehorse projects. Each of these projects contain JORC Code 2012 classified Coal Resources. 

Investment Highlights

  • Experienced Board and management: extensive coal experience in Canada and Australia
  • Significant resource: JORC compliant Mineral Resources across four Projects totalling 163Mt (130Mt Indicated, and 33Mt Inferred Mineral Resources)
  • Clear pathway to production: The Montem Board believes the existing permits at Tent Mountain mine provides a significant advantage in re-establishing mining activities in a comparatively short time frame.
  • High quality steelmaking coal: Whilst historic production at Tent Mountain mine and Vicary mine was sold as hard coking coal to Japan, there is no certainty similar hard coking coal products will be produced from any of the Chinook Properties. Further drilling and sample testing will be required to confirm whether a soft, semi-soft/weak, semi-hard or hard coking product can be produced.
  • Previously mined: Four of the Chinook Properties have been mined previously in the 1960s, 1970s and 1980s, with Tent Mountain closing in 1983.
  • Approvals: Tent Mountain mine has a current environmental approval, however an amendment to the environmental approval is required to restart mining as are requisite additional mine operating licences.
  • Nearby infrastructure: Most of the Chinook Properties, including Tent Mountain, are within close proximity to the main rail network linking the properties to export ports in Vancouver.
  • Exploration upside: Potential for Resource extension through exploration activities.

Management and Board

The Montem Resources board and management possess significant experience in ASX-listed coal companies, and in the development and operation of coal mining assets.  These include:

  • Peter Doyle, Managing Director and CEO – has over 20 years’ experience in the coal industry including roles in production, project development, marketing and management.
