Federal Review Panel North : recommendations report.

« The Nunavik Nickel project involves the construction and operation of an open-pit mine for primary nickel extraction and secondary copper extraction and the construction of port infrastructure at Deception Bay. The mine is located south of the Raglan Mine, which was given authorization to begin operations in 1995, and north of Pingualuit provincial park, between the northern villages of Salluit and Kangiqsujuaq. This recommendations report deals only with the construction and operation of the port infrastructure in Deception Bay. The project covered by COFEX-N’s review mandate specifically consists of the construction of the wharf, dredging and sediment management operations, the transshipment of concentrate onto the ships and shipping activities in Deception Bay related to transporting the concentrate. Other infrastructure, specifically the ore concentrate storage facility, work camp, oil depot and access roads, were built in or before 2012, in accordance with the authorization sent by the Federal Administrator in 2008 »--p. 6.
