Royalty Details

  • Terms: Altius holds 1.5% to 3% price-based sliding scale Gross Sales Royalty on the Telkwa/Tenas Project area. In addition to the royalty, there are substantial milestone-based equity/cash payments to be received.

Asset Highlights

  • Altius effectively sold the Telkwa project in 2015 to a private Australian group who then went public via Allegiance Coal (ASX:AHQ) in 2017. Since then Allegiance has completed a number of technical and financial studies including a Definitive Feasibility Study in the first quarter of 2019 which highlighted robust project economics - DFS 2019.


The Telkwa metallurgical coal project (Project) is located on the western side of British Columbia easily accessible to the international Port of Prince Rupert, which is a relatively short shipping distance to the Asian steel mills.

Allegiance is currently advancing the project and recently completed a DFS in 2019 of which the highlights are tabled below. Allegiance also attracted Itochu of Japan as a strategic partner in 2018 to assist in project development and financing of the project to production. The Project is now at the permitting stage.
