Hi Kent,

I remember seeing this ship regularly in the 1990's at the QIT port in Havre St-Pierre (200 km east of Sept-Îles). The ore is mined at Lac Tio (43 km north of Havre St-Pierre), transported by rail to the port , and then shipped to the Sorel-Tracy complex for transformation.

Does anyone know which vessel now transports the ore to Sorel-tracy?

more info: QIT (Fer et Titane)

Steve :)

I believe they are the Nanticoke and the John B. aird but not real certain of the latter one....
