The Quintette mining project is primarily owned by Teck Coal and is located in northern British Columbia, Canada, approximately 20 kilometres south of the town of Tumbler Ridge. The mine had previously operated for a period of nearly 18 years up until 2000. Teck is pursuing plans to restart the mine, for approximate steelmaking coal production of 3.0 million tonnes per year. Feasibility study results are expected to be completed by mid 2011, and the mine could be in production by 2013.
