Our mines

ArcelorMittal Mining Canada G.P. is Canada’s largest supplier of iron ore to the global steel market.

The company is the largest mining subsidiary of the ArcelorMittal Group in the world. It operates a mining complex, a crusher and a concentrator in Mont-Wright, a mine in Fire Lake, and a pellet plant in Port-Cartier.

In operation since 1974, our Mont-Wright mine covers 24 square kilometres, making it one of the largest open-pit deposits in Canada. Located near Fermont, it has reserves for more than 30 years. Our company also operates a second mine site at Fire Lake.

The raw ore from Fire Lake is sent to our Mont-Wright mining complex where all our ore is crushed, ground and concentrated. Our concentrate is then transported by rail to Port-Cartier, where it will either be sent to our plant to be made into iron oxide pellets or directly to our port to be shipped to international markets.

The combined production of our Mont-Wright and Fire Lake mines represents over 40% of the ArcelorMittal Group’s global iron ore supply.

We produce approximately 26 million tonnes of iron ore concentrate annually and our goal is to continue to increase this capacity.
