"Garnet" in Northern Labrador
CBC, Newfoundland & Labrador, July 2012

A few years ago, Freeport Resources was on the hunt for diamonds in Northern Labrador. Instead, the company found a rich deposit of a mineral called Garnet, north of Nain. Not as romantic or as rare as diamonds - but the sand has its uses. It's in demand as a precision cutting tool in high tech industries. This summer, Freeport is taking a bulk sample of the mineral...and may come back for boatloads of the stuff. A Garnet mine would be a first for Labrador. Brenda Clark is president of Freeport Resources. She spoke to Labrador Morning producer Chris Harbord
