|Ontario Teachers Pension Plan Board|
Ontario Teachers Pension Plan Board. One of the largest private pension fund investors in the minerals industry, this Board in October 2008 acquired 1.85 million shares in the Canadian assets of Fording Coal, after Teck sold a 27.6m Fording units to an unnamed Canadian bank [Mineweb 14 October 2008].
Since then, however, the Board has not announced any minerals-related investments.
In in December 2010, it provided C$75 million ($75 million) in equity capital to privately held green-power company BluEarth Renewables Inc, based in Calgary, which is a "a developer, builder and operator of hydro, wind and solar energy projects in North America" [PlanetEarth, 17 December 2010].
