Canadian environmental agency to assess proposed rail line in Quebec mining region

The Canadian Environmental Assessment Agency recently determined that a federal environmental assessment is required for the proposed Cóte-Nord Mining Railway Project in Quebec.

The agency is soliciting written public comments on draft environmental impact statement guidelines until Nov. 22.

Cóte-Nord Mining Railway Co. Inc. proposes to build and operate a rail line in the Cóte-Nord and Labrador regions. Railway right of way would extend between Sept-Íles, Quebec, and Wabush/Labrador City in Labrador, where it would connect with a Tshiuetin Railway line. The project would include new ore handling and storage facilities at the Port of Sept-Íles in Pointe-Noire.

CN and the Caisse de dépót et placement du Québec have jointly invested in Cóte-Nord Mining Railway and are undertaking a feasibility study and environmental assessment for the potential construction of a 340-mile rail line to serve mining industries in the vicinity of Fermont and Schefferville.
