Nova Scotia has significant reserves of coal. Coal mining, when done in an environmentally responsible manner, can provide significant economic benefits to the province and to local communities.
Nova Scotia will continue to support the development of indigenous sources of coal where environmentally and economically feasible, and will encourage responsible surface-coal development projects, particularly those that assist in the reclamation of land affected by historical mining.
