Summary of Environmental Assessment Process

Project Description:

The proponent proposes to develop a sand and gravel quarry located 15.5 kilometres east of the Town of Wabush and 1.5 kilometres south of Route 500, the Trans Labrador Highway. The quarry area will be approximately 2 hectares in size and access to the site will be through an existing dirt access road. The area will be developed as an open pit operation to produce concrete aggregates such as Class A and B road material for general construction work in western Labrador.

The operation will typically run between May to October and it has a potential operating life of five years.
