ST. LAWRENCE, N.L. —

The Canadian Environmental Assessment Agency has begun an assessment on the proposed marine shipping terminal to be built in Mine Cove, Little Lawn Harbour by Canada Fluorspar (NL) Inc.

The facility, which will be built on the western municipal border of St. Lawrence, will include a waste-rock crushing plant, aggregate stockpiles, concentrate storage buildings, access and haul roads, a wharf, a conveyor, a ship-loader and a 350-metre long rock-filled breakwater.

The proposed development would ship approximately 200,000 tonnes of acid-grade fluorspar concentrate and two-million tonnes of construction aggregate per year.

The deadline for public comments on the project is Aug.29.
