The Roman Mountain project is a proposed coal development which is owned by Peace River Coal, which is 75% owned by Anglo American.

The company states that the project is located "immediately south of the current Trend mine, envisages an open pit mine producing up to 3 million tons of coal per annum with a life expectancy of about 10 years." The company states on its website that "a prefeasibility study will be completed in 2010; the Environmental Assessment report will be submitted in early 2010. Mining is envisaged to commence in 2013, with full production being achieved later in that year. Further northwestward extensions to the Roman Mountain resource are currently being investigated."[1]
