Kami Iron Ore Project

Projects that were undergoing a comprehensive study at the time the provisions of the Canadian Environmental Assessment Act, 2012 came into force will continue to follow the requirements of the former Act. Under the former Act, the Canadian Environmental Assessment Agency is responsible for conducting the comprehensive study of this project.

The proposed project consists of constructing and operating an open-pit iron ore mine about 10 kilometres west of Labrador City, Newfoundland and Labrador. The mine would produce up to 16 million tonnes of iron ore concentrate annually and would include waste rock disposal areas, a tailings management facility, processing and support infrastructure, and a 12-kilometre rail connection to the existing Quebec North Shore and Labrador Railway. Mined ore concentrate would be loaded into rail cars and transported to the Port of Sept-Îles, where it would be unloaded, stockpiled and transferred to vessels for delivery to customers. Modifications and additions to the rail system at Sept-Îles are also planned to facilitate unloading and handling of incoming ore concentrate.
