“The Port of Saguenay is a natural gateway to Northern Quebec and its extensive natural resources,” said Chief Executive Officer of Port of Saguenay, Carl Laberge.
“Our deep-water marine facilities, terminal and adjacent port industrial area offer companies like First Phosphate direct access to international markets and a partner committed to environmental protection and sustainable development. We are pleased to support the launch of this project.”
“Securing shipping and industrial development space at port facilities has become increasingly challenging for many companies around the world. First Phosphate now has engaged with a committed partner to secure guaranteed deep sea access to the world, as we execute on our global advanced phosphate materials strategy. Phase one of our strategy is to develop our phosphate mining operations in the region and to deliver a high purity phosphate concentrate to be known globally as “Quebec Rock Phosphate” FOB Port Saguenay for wider use in the LFP battery industry worldwide.”
