Location Newfoundland, Labrador Canada
Year of realization 2020
Project value Confidential


The Wabush mines started operations in 1965 and closed in 2014. During that period of operation, the mine had produced between 2.7 million and 6 million tons of iron ore concentrate annually.

TACORA Resources (TACORA) is now focused on the revitalization and restart of the mine and concentrator by improving the reliability and safety of the operation and to help increase the production rate of the Scully mine.

Since TACORA continues to ramp-up in production, the importance of achieving higher levels of reliability from the drying system will become crucial to TACORA’s success. All equipment, production systems and auxiliary systems in the dryer building, including, all conveyors feeding and exiting the dryer building are to be considered as part of this project.


  • Review installations, initial design, process, configuration of systems & subsystems
  • Identify modifications and improvements (sustaining projects & execution) required to improve reliability
  • Plan the re-Commissioning of the systems and subsystems with emphasis on critical equipment
  • Deficiencies management
  • Validate and improve maintenance and operation works
