Title: Coal Transport - Slurry Pipeline May be Answer for Mount Klappan

British Columbia - Fortune Minerals has been studying the use of a slurry pipeline to move clean coal from the Mount Klappan anthracite mine to the ports of Stewart and Prince Rupert, B.C.

The project is located 160 km northwest of Stewart
