Canada Fluorspar (NL) Inc. has registered its proposed marine shipping terminal for environmental assessment with the provincial government.

The company is planning to build the terminal near Mine Cove in Little Lawn Harbour, along the western border of the Town of St. Lawrence, for the purpose of exporting fluorspar concentrate and construction aggregate from its mine in the area, according to an environmental assessment bulletin released by the Department of Municipal Affairs and Environment on Thursday, June 6.

The project includes a waste rock crushing plant and aggregate stockpiles, a concentrate storage building, access and haul roads, a wharf, a conveyor, a ship-loading system, and a rock-filled breakwater.

The deadline for public comments on the project is July 11, and the minister’s decision is due by July 20.
