The article provides information on the operations of Iron Ore Company of Canada (IOC). In 1954, the company opened its original Smallwood mine in Schefferville, Quebec and that mine produced iron ore until 1982. In 1962, IOC opened its Carol Lake operations in Labrador City in Newfoundland and Labrador. According to the article, the company's $60 million commitment to increase concentrate output from 17.0 million to 18.4 million tonnes/year (t/y) is merely the start of an expansion program that could see concentrate production increase by as much as 50 percent to 25.0 million t/y.
