Carrières Mipo – Ship Loading – Aggregate

Location Sept-Îles, Québec
Year of realization 2019
Project type CAPEX

Our client, Les Carrières MIPO, holds the mining rights for a quarry of premium granite aggregate. The aggregates produced by this future quarry are intended for export to the southern United States. As the site is located 12 km from a major bulk port terminal, the project includes a conveyor system connecting the quarry with the port’s infrastructure.

Clear plans and specifications to speed up the start of a project

Les Carrières MIPO commissioned TRINUM to conduct a feasibility study for the conveyor project. From the topographic surveys, we performed a complete study of the various possible conveyor routes. Preliminary quotes were also completed and presented to potential suppliers to complete a cost study. TRINUM also participated in discussions with port authorities and government agencies for permits.
