Griffith Iron Ore Redevelopment Project

Lithium Energy Products Inc. (formerly Northern Iron Corporation) proposes the redevelopment of the former Griffith Mine within the Township of Ear Falls in northwestern Ontario. The Project would involve the construction, operation, and decommissioning of a past-producing open pit iron ore mine. The proposed project would produce approximately 16,000 tonnes of ore per day, with a mine life of approximately 20 years. The iron ore would be milled on-site to produce slightly more than 4,000 tonnes per day of hot briquetted iron.
