Review and Variance – Administrative Penalty

Application

Green Block Mining Corp. (“Green Block”) requested a 30-day extension for payment of the penalty ordered in Decision 26379-D05-2023, which directed payment of an administrative penalty of $346,500 and Alberta Utilities Commission (“AUC”) enforcement staff’s legal expenses of $60,000, within 30 days of the date of the decision. Green Block advised the AUC that it made a $140,000 partial administrative penalty payment to the Government of Alberta General Revenue Fund and the full $60,000 legal expenses payment to the AUC.

Decision

The AUC extended the deadline for Green Block to pay the outstanding $206,500.00 of the administrative penalty specified at paragraph 25 of Decision 26379-D05-2023 to February 21, 2024.

Pertinent Issues

In light of Green Block’s partial payment of the administrative penalty and full payment of legal expenses specified in Decision 26379-D05-2023, the AUC was satisfied that granting Green Block’s request was in the public interest. The AUC determined that in the circumstances, extending the deadline by a month, as proposed by Green Block, facilitates full payment of the administrative penalty.
