Proposed Castle Development Renamed Fording River Extension Project

Teck has changed the name of the proposed project to extend the life of our existing Fording River Operations to the Fording River Extension Project, or FRX. From our engagement activities, it was clear that the previous “Castle” Project name was leading to some confusion. The Fording River Extension (FRX) name will help to more clearly and accurately convey the nature of this project as an extension of the existing operation and not a new or separate operation. We have informed the Impact Assessment Agency of Canada (IAAC) and the BC Environmental Assessment Office (BCEAO) of this change.

FRX represents an opportunity to secure the existing social and economic benefits from the Fording River Operations long term, integrating best practices for environmental protection. As always, Teck is committed to meaningful engagement about our plans for FRX. We are working with Indigenous nations, regulators, communities of interest and the public to understand and respond to issues and interests regarding the Project.
