The Point Rousse Port Facility is located on the Point Rousse Peninsula, along the northern portion of the Baie Verte Peninsula, approximately three kilometres northeast of Baie Verte, Newfoundland and Labrador. The Project allows the proponent to load crushed mine waste rock onto marine vessels for shipment to the United States.
