The Victor Diamond Mine Project
From the fall of 2005 to the spring of 2008, Larabie successfully executed the transportation of over 3,278 loads of material and equipment on a 370 km winter road along the James Bay Coast contributing to the building of the first Diamond Mine in Ontario. A Joint Venture, Creewest Logistics, was created among the Five First Nation Communities on the James Bay Coast for this project.
During that time, a turnkey operation was provided to successfully handle a transportation contract in a remote area with minimum resources available. Complete services were provided for 300 employees from travel, full camp services and human resources support.
After completing the construction contract with DeBeers we were fortunate enough to sign another 3 year maintenance contract. During the winter months of 2009 to 2011, we transported the equipment, tools and supplies assuring the continuous operation of the Victor mine.
Bear Island Project
The Bear Island Project is a large remediation project initiated by Public Works and Government Services Canada. The project was successfully completed in 2010, in association with Wiinibek Limited Partnership, Larabie’s affiliated company, and Biogenie.
Bear Island is situated within the Nunavut territory where James Bay flows into Hudson Bay. It is one of the most remote areas that Larabie has provided services. The site was only accessible by barge or plane.
Our scope of services and deliverables included the provision, operation and maintenance of the construction camp, provision of adequate machinery and labour, as well as wildlife monitoring.
Lower Mattagami Project
In 2010, we signed a 4 year contract with Kiewit-Alarie Partnership for the land freight and onsite trucking of the Ontario Power Generation Extensions Project at the Lower Mattagami River Project. We are also responsible for the transportation of food and kitchen supplies for this development. This project is part of a joint venture we have with Moose Cree members (Cree Carriers JV).
In the winter months of 2011 to 2013, we transported equipment and contaminated soils for Sanexen Environmental Services Inc from the remediation site of Winisk, Ontario. Winisk is part of the mid-Canada Line Remediation Project initiated by Public Works and Government Services Canada. We have also transported loads during that time for the Weenusk First Nation community.
