Champion Iron Ltd. of Montreal has appointed Alexandre Belleau as chief operating officer. Belleau was instrumental in the successful recommissioning and operation of the Bloom Lake mine since joining Champion in 2016 and he most recently held the title of General Manager of Projects and Innovation, leading the Company’s efforts in connection with the mine’s proposed Phase II expansion project.

According to David Cataford, Champion’s CEO, “Alexandre has worked closely with the executive team over the last few years, successfully managing and improving our business.

“Together with the rest of our team, I look forward to continuing to implement our plans for strategic growth with Alexandre in his new role, as we further improve our position as an emerging global leader in the high-grade iron ore industry.”

Belleau holds a Bachelor of Mechanical Engineering degree from the Université de Sherbrooke and is an executive member of the Québec Mining Association.

Champion Iron, through its subsidiary Québec Iron Ore Inc., owns and operates the Bloom Lake Mining Complex, located on the south end of the Labrador Trough, approximately 13 km north of Fermont, QC, adjacent to established iron ore producers. Bloom Lake is an open-pit truck and shovel operation, with a concentrator, and it ships iron concentrate from the site by rail, initially on the Bloom Lake Railway, to a ship loading port in Sept-Îles, QC.
