Bloom Lake Iron Project Railway

Proponent: Consolidated Thompson-Lundmark Gold Mines Ltd.

Summary of Environmental Assessment Process

Project Description:

The proponent proposes to construct and operate a new 36 kilometre long single-track railway line to connect the company's existing mine site near Fermont in northern Quebec with the existing railway line between Wabush Mines and the Quebec North Shore & Labrador Railway. A marshalling yard and repair shop will be built near the junction with the existing railway and the crossing of Highway Route 389. The rail connection is necessary to deliver iron concentrates to the port of Sept-Iles for trans-shipment by boat to overseas and domestic customers. Except for the initial 2 kilometres of track, all of the line will be located in the Province of Newfoundland and Labrador.
