TransAlta Corp will stop mining coal at its Highvale mine by the end of 2021 and will no longer use coal to generate power in Canada effective January 1, 2022. TransAlta said it was closing the mine, which is located south of Lake Wabamun, about 70 kilometres west of Edmonton, four years ahead of schedule in an effort to accelerate its environmental, social, and corporate governance goals.

The Highvale mine, which has been in operation since 1970, is one of three TransAlta-owned surface coal mines and Canada’s largest surface strip coal mine, covering more than 12,600 hectares
