Labrador Iron Mines (LIM) is engaged in the exploration and development of direct shipping (DSO) deposits located in the Schefferville/Menihek region of the prolific Labrador Trough. Production commenced at the James Mine in 2011 and through to the end of 2013, the Company mined and sold approximately 3.6 million dry tonnes (3.8 million wet tonnes) in 23 shipments of iron ore into the Chinese spot market.

LIM did not undertake any mining operations in the 2014 to 2017 operating seasons due to the deteriorating iron ore market conditions and the prevailing low price of iron ore. 

On April 2, 2015, LIM instituted proceedings in the Ontario Superior Court of Justice (the "Court") for a financial restructuring by means of a plan of compromise or arrangement under the Companies' Creditors Arrangement Act ("CCAA"). On December 14, 2016 LIM's Plan of Compromise and Arrangement having been approved at the creditors meetings held on December 6, 2016, was sanctioned by the Ontario Superior Court of Justice in Toronto. 

The Plan was designed to restructure the LIM group's business to preserve its mining assets, permit LIM to continue its site activites in a standby mode in the near term, and to preserve a significant portion of the group's tax losses.

The principal results of implementation of the Plan is the conversion of debts of Labrador Iron Mines Holdings (“LIMH”) into equity in LIMH and conversion of the debts of LIM and Schefferville Mines Inc ("SMI") into equity in LIM. 

LIM is now positioned to resume mining operations and development of its Houston Mine, when market conditions permit, subject to completion of financing and negotiation of major contracts.

Labrador Iron Mines Limited

LIMH now holds approximately 51% of the shares of LIM and former creditors of LIM and SMI now hold, as a group, a 49% equity interest in LIM. LIM holds all of the group's mineral properties and assets.

Houston Iron Royalties Limited

Former creditors of LIM and SMI also received shares in Houston Iron Royalties Limited ("RoyaltyCo"), a newly-formed corporation that has the right to receive a royalty equal to 2% of the sales proceeds (FOB Port of Sept-Iles) received by LIM from sales of iron ore from LIM's Houston and SMI's Malcolm properties.
