Vale Inco held a meeting on January 19, 2010 in Nain, about the winter shipping season.
We spoke to Theresa Hollett who is the IBA coordinator for Nunatsiavut.
Hollett says about twenty people attended this meeting.
She says they discussed the normal winter season that would start January 22nd, 2010 and end at midnight April 6th, 2010.
She says the ice is so different this year- there’s open water, pot holes and the ice edge is very close.
She says they also discussed a second pontoon structure, which will be built by Vale Inco.
Hollett adds that representing Vale Inco at the meeting were herself, Tom Paddon, Herman Perry, Myron Roberts, and Sophie Ford. Tim Keane from Fednav and Gus Dicker from Sikumiut were also in attendance.
