Listed on the stock market, focused on performance

Champion Iron is an iron ore exploration and development company with major projects in the southern Labrador Trough, Canada’s largest iron ore producing region.

Champion Iron, through its wholly owned subsidiary Champion Iron Mines Limited, is developing eight iron rich projects in a 707 km2 area. Each project is strategically located close to the electrical grid, all-season roads and railway lines. This infrastructure connects the projects to a terminal located in water that does not freeze, on the north shore of the Gulf of St. Lawrence.

Bloom Lake, our company’s flagship asset, has proven its ability to economically produce a high-grade iron ore concentrate. With its current nameplate capacity of 7.4 Mtpa, our company recently released a feasibility study that looks to double capacity at Bloom Lake.

Champion Iron represents the future of the Canadian iron mining industry.

Champion Iron presented the results of a preliminary feasibility study for the Consolidated Fire Lake North (CFLN) project, located in the center of the Fermont Iron Ore District (FIOD). The study estimates the CFLN’s net present value at $3.3 billion, net of 8% cash flow, with a 30.9% internal rate of return and a 3.4-year payback period for initial capital.

The average production of iron ore concentrate will yield 9.3 million tonnes annually (Mtpa), with an impressive 66% Fe iron content over a 20-year mine life.

A resource of
Superior Quality

The high-grade concentrate is obtained from an iron oxide ore—a high quality, coarse specular hematite—which liberates at an 850-micron grind size, with no sign of deleterious elements.

The company continues to increase its efforts to eliminate risks related to its projects and to maximize economic aspects by working with other stakeholders in the Labrador Trough.
