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. For the previous six years he was the General Manager at Teck Coal's Fording River operation located in British Columbia, Canada. The Fording River operation is the largest metallurgical coal mine in Canada with over 1,200 employees and a capacity to produce up to 10 million metric tonnes of metallurgical clean coal for sale to steel mills around the world.

Mr. Tremblay, who will be based in the company's Hinton office, will be responsible for preparing the Vista Coal Project (" Vista") for commissioning and running the mine once it is operational. Mr Tremblay will have overall responsibility for the safety and effectiveness of the operations, all environmental and health matters, production control and staff functions at Vista. Mr. Tremblay has diverse and extensive management experience in open pit coal mining and a proven track record of achieving operational targets. Mr. Tremblay has also been recognized twice as operating the open pit mine in the province of British Columbia with the lowest lost time incident frequency (2009 John Ash Award - Fording River Operation, 2005 Edward Prior Award - Line Creek Operation).

Mr. Tremblay holds a Masters of Business Administration from Simon Fraser University and is a professional engineer with a Bachelor of Science in Chemical Engineering from Queen's University.

President and CEO, Gill Winckler said "Richard is ideally placed to step into the VP, Operations role and we are extremely pleased that he has joined the Coalspur team. Richard's hands-on operational expertise, strong leadership skills and considerable coal mining experience will be invaluable as we move forward with the development of Vista."

"Coalspur is proud to have attracted someone of Richard's calibre to enhance the technical and operational capabilities of our team. Richard joins us at an exciting stage in the Company's transition as it prepares to commence construction on Vista."
