St. Lawrence Fluorspar Marine Shipping Terminal 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. As proposed, the St. Lawrence Fluorspar Marine Shipping Terminal Project would allow for the exportation of 200,000 tonnes of acid-grade fluorspar concentrate and 2 million tonnes of construction aggregate per year. 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.
