CALGARY, Feb. 5, 2013 /CNW/ - Coalspur Mines Limited ("Coalspur") (ASX: CPL, TSX: CPT) is pleased to announce the appointment of Mr. Richard Tremblay to the position of Vice President, Operations (" VP, Operations").

Mr. Tremblay has 22 years of experience in the industry and joins Coalspur from Teck Coal where he was most recently General Manager Business Improvement - Mining and Processing.
