Mine to open 20 years later

Canadian Fluorspar, partnering with Arkema, says that a multi-million dollar deal will see the mine in St. Lawrence on the Burin Peninsula re-opening later this year. “We filed a mine development plan and will be meeting with the [provincial] government next week to make sure some of the things that need to be done are getting done because our goal still is to break ground in August , and we’re still focused to do that,” said Canadian Fluorspar President and CEO Lindsey Gorril Wednesday. The re-opening of the mine, which saw most of its activity between the 1930’s and 1970’s, is expected to create more than 150 full-time jobs on Newfoundland’s Burin Peninsula.
