Operation of Fire Lake Iron Ore Mine
In 2005, LECQ was awarded the contract to supply and install a 50 man camp which would be used to house the workers who would operate this mine. In 2006 we were awarded the contract to operate this mine on a seasonal basis (May to November). This operation includes drilling, blasting, loading and hauling the iron ore to a rail spur where it is loaded onto trains which transport the ore to Mt. Wright, QC for processing. In addition, we also operate and maintain the worker’s camp.
This contract was renewed in 2007 and 2008. There was a sabbatical in 2009. In 2010, we were awarded this contract for 5 more years.
