Quinsam produces high-quality thermal coal that is sold to the cement industry in British Columbia and to international cement and power-generating customers around the Pacific Rim. Coal from Quinsam is trucked to the Middle Point barge-loading facility in Campbell River and then is loaded onto barges for either: 1) direct shipment to the cement industry, or 2) shipment to Texada Island, where it is transloaded onto Handymax and Panamax-class ships for delivery to international customers.
