As part of Teck’s ongoing commitment to safety and in alignment with the Province of British Columbia’s decision to re-open backcountry access, public access to all Teck’s private land holdings in the Elk Valley area are re-opened, effective immediately.
In the interest of public safety and to help reduce the potential for human-caused wildfire:
– Vehicular access is restricted to highway licensed vehicle use on established road surfaces only.
– Parking or traveling in grassy areas or areas where combustible materials are present is restricted.
– The operation of any off-road vehicle for recreational purposes is prohibited on Teck’s private land holdings in the Elk Valley until further notice.
– Campfires (as defined in the Wildfire Regulation: www.gov.bc.ca/wildfirelegislation) or the burning of waste or other materials is prohibited on Teck’s private land holdings in the Elk Valley until further notice.
It is expected that the remaining restrictions will be in place until the fire hazard ratings are further reduced in the region.

Teck thanks the public for their cooperation and will provide further updates as required.
