Fortune Minerals mulls strategic alternatives for project

Fortune Minerals Ltd. said Wednesday it is looking at strategic alternatives to advance its Mount Klappan anthracite coal project in northwest British Columbia.

The miner, based in London, Ont., said it has hired CIBC World Markets Inc. to help it look for potential strategic partners and to evaluate potential transactions.
