Board is considering company’s proposal to double output at Mary River iron mine
Opposition to Baffinland Iron Mines Corp.’s proposed expansion of its Mary River mine didn’t skip a beat Monday when the Nunavut Impact Review Board’s hearing into the project resumed in Iqaluit.
As part of what it calls its Phase 2 project, Baffinland wants to construct a 110-km railway from the Mary River iron mine to Milne Inlet, add an additional dock at Milne Inlet, and increase the mine’s output to 12 million tonnes a year from six million tonnes.
The company’s proposal has been before the Nunavut Impact Review Board, which considers the potential impact of proposed developments in Nunavut, since 2019.
