Regulators in Canada have rejected environmental approval of Riversdale Resources’ proposed Grassy Mountain coking coal project in Alberta. Riversdale Resources is owned by Gina Rinehart’s Hancock Prospecting, which paid $800 million to acquire it in 2019. News of the rejection of the Grassy Mountain project had a significant impact on the share price of Montem Resources and Atrum Coal on 22 June, with both companies having projects in the vicinity of Grassy Mountain; Montem’s shares fell 52.8 per cent, while Atrum’s shares were down by 40.4 per cent.
