What is a Prefeasibility Study?

The purpose of a prefeasibility study is to determine the costs associated with a project and assess the host environment’s capacity to accommodate it (i.e., location, environmental constraints, transport, etc.). This is the stage when the initial plans are drafted. The community is also consulted to take note of concerns as of the first phase of project design. This prefeasibility study will take about five months to complete.


The phosphoric acid plant will require a yearly supply of sulfuric acid, water* and apatite from the Lac à Paul mine. The plant will produce 500,000 tonnes of phosphoric acid (product), along with by-product gypsum.
*Since the water would be supplied by NB Power, no new water source would be required.
