Modified from the 2018 Project Description: Baffinland is seeking an amendment to its Project Certificate No. 005 to allow the company to implement its Phase 2 Development Proposal for the Mary River Project. Phase 2 would enable Baffinland to transport by rail and ship up to 12 million tonnes per year (Mtpa) of ore from Milne Port and to retain the current authorizations for the construction and operation of the Steensby Port and South (Mine to Steensby) Railway as proposed in 2012.



Phase 2 involves increasing the quantity of ore shipped through Milne Port from 6 Mtpa to 12 Mtpa, via the construction of a new railway running largely parallel to the existing Tote Road (called the North Railway). The total mine production will eventually increase to 30 Mtpa, with 12 Mtpa being transported via the North Railway to Milne Port and 18 Mtpa transported via the South Railway to Steensby Port.



The additional Phase 2 Proposal facilities and activities for construction and operation of the Project will consist of:

Changes to crushing and transport of ore;

Construction of the Mine Site North Railway Terminal;

Expansion of the permanent fuel depot;

Expansion of the power plant;

Installation and operation of a wind turbine;

Expansion of the accommodation complex;

Expansion of the water supply and sewage treatment facilities; and

Expansion of the mine maintenance facilities and support administration buildings/facilities (warehouses, shops, etc.).
