Belleoram Crushed Rock Export Quarry

Proponent: Continental Stone Limited

Summary of Environmental Assessment Process

Project Description:

Continental Stone Limited proposes to develop a crushed rock export quarry on a site approximately 900 hectares in area, north of Belleoram in Fortune Bay. The primary physical features will include a quarry, a marine wharf and a new access road. Rock will be quarried and crushed on site, loaded onto ships via a conveyor belt and shipped to market.

Operations are expected to begin in September 2014.
