TUMBLER RIDGE, B.C.—    The federal government has given the green light to a coal mining project proposed for central B-C.

    Environment Minister Catherine McKenna announced approval yesterday for the Murray River mining project near Tumbler Ridge.

    The project -- by H-D Mining International -- will mine metallurgical coal, known as coking coal, which is used to produce steel.

    McKenna says approval for the project includes 104 legally-binding conditions for environmental projection in the area.
