Quinsam Coal Corporation



Quinsam Coal Corporation (the “Company”) operates the Quinsam coal mine located in Campbell River, B.C. The Company has operated the Quinsam coal mine since 1988.

In 2016 the Quinsam coal mine was put into care and maintenance due to weak market demand for thermal coal. In 2017 the Company was acquired by new ownership and operations restarted at the mine.

After restarting operations, the Company experienced operational issues and cost overruns resulting in higher than anticipated productions cost, reduced profitability and liquidity issues. 

The Company was unable to find additional sources of capital to continue operations and ceased operations at the mine in June 2019.

On July 3, 2019 the Company made an assignment into bankruptcy and PricewaterhouseCoopers Inc. was appointment as the Trustee. 


On September 20, 2019 The Bowra Group Inc. was appointed as Receiver and Manager of all of the assets, undertakings and property of Company.
