The Proposed Project

Canada Fluorspar (NL) Inc. is proposing the construction, operation, decommissioning and reclamation of a marine shipping terminal located in Mine Cove, Little Lawn Harbour, along the western border of the Town of St. Lawrence, Newfoundland and Labrador.

The project includes a waste-rock crushing plant, radial arm stockpiling system, aggregate stockpiles, concentrate storage buildings, access and haul roads, a wharf and ship-loader, and a 350-metre long rock-filled breakwater.
