Wabush 3 Groundwater Extraction Project

The Iron Ore Company of Canada proposes a groundwater extraction project to support a new open pit at the Labrador West iron ore mine site near the Town of Labrador City. The proposed project would comprise a groundwater extraction facility (including the removal of groundwater from the pit and a mine water collection, pumping and treatment system) which would likely exceed 200,000 m3/a.
