To assist it in making its decision, the Agency is seeking comments from the public on the project and its potential effects on the environment.

The project proposed by Oceanic Iron Ore Corp. consists of an open-pit iron ore mine located in the Nunavik region in Quebec. The mine would produce approximately 72,000 to 144,000 tonnes of ore per day over a 48-year life span.
