About Us

Baffinland Iron Mines Corporation (Baffinland) is a Canadian mining company, mining iron ore at the Mary River operation in the Qikiqtani region of North Baffin, Nunavut, Canada. At Baffinland, most of our employees work beyond the Arctic Circle, in one of the world's most captivating and seldom-seen destinations.

Baffinland is jointly owned by ArcelorMittal and Nunavut Iron Ore. Our head office is located in Oakville, Ontario, Canada and our Northern Headquarters are located in Iqaluit, the capital of Nuanvut.

We also maintain a year-round presence in the North Baffin communities near our operation, with community liaison offices in Arctic Bay, Clyde River, Hall Beach, Igloolik, and Pond Inlet.

The Mary River Operation

The Mary River Property is located at approximately 72 degrees north by 79 degrees west on Baffin Island and consists of nine high-grade iron ore deposits. We’ve been working on the development of the property and in 2015, we moved into operations. Since then, we’ve been mining Deposit No. 1. Because of the high grade of the iron ore, we simply mine, crush, and screen the ore on site, and then ship it directly to markets – no concentrating or processing needed. That means significantly less impact on the environment than typical iron ore operations. 

Committed to the North

Since 1986, we’ve been working to develop the Mary River Property, safely, sustainably, and in accordance with agreements made with Inuit birthright corporations Nunavut Tunngavik Inc. (NTI) and the Qikiqtani Inuit Association (QIA), as well as to the Government of Nunavut. We’ve also been regularly collecting and incorporating feedback from the local communities.

With our partners, we’ve been contributing to infrastructure developments, skills training, and employment and business opportunities for the people of Nunavut and have been providing revenues to NTI and QIA.

Building for the Future

Baffinland is committed to building and operating the Mary River Mine in an environmentally and socially responsible manner that will benefit all stakeholders. Given the significant wealth-generating potential of the deposits, the benefits are not just our generation, but for generations to come.
