The Chuitna Coal Project is located on the west side of Cook Inlet in the Chuit River Watershed in the Kenai Peninsula Borough of Alaska, approximately 12 miles northwest of the Native Village of Tyonek and 45 miles west of Anchorage.
The Chuitna Coal Project is being designed by PacRim Coal as a surface coal mine with contemporaneous reclamation to recover an estimated 300 million tons of sub-bituminous ultra low sulfur coal. It will reduce those emissions when blended with or burned in lieu of other coals.
Production will depend on market demand, but is expected to average 12 million metric tons per year.
Major components of the Project are the Mine Area, the Infrastructure, and the Port Facilities.
