加拿大紐芬蘭省的一家礦業公司Burin Minerals Ltd.(BML)，該公司在紐芬蘭省已探明的氟石（FLUORSPAR）儲量有800萬噸，由於目前氧化鋁價格上漲，作爲冶煉氧化鋁時的助溶劑，氟石的價格也在不斷上漲。該公司原先關閉的氟石廠也正計劃重新投入運營，加之距離美國近以及中國需求增長等因素，該公司希望感興趣的中國礦業公司能夠投資氟石廠。

Burin Minerals Ltd.(BML) is a registered Newfoundland & Labrador mining company and a wholly owned subsidiary of Burin Fluorspar Limited (BFL) of Alberta, Canada. BML owns mineral licenses and mining leases to all the major fluorspar deposits located at St. Lawrence on the Burin Peninsula, on the southeast coast of Newfoundland. The fluorspar resources are of high-quality with over 8 million tonnes of measured and indicated resources and a further 2.2 million tonnes of inferred resources. There is also a very high potential for further discoveries.
Fluorspar mining had its origin in St. Lawrence in 1933. The mines operated under the control of The Aluminim Company of Canada (ALCAN) until 1978 when the mines closed down due to low-cost Mexican fluorspar. They re-opened in 1988 only to shut down again in 1991. The 85,000 t (acidgrade) mill and other mine buildings were moth-balled. In 1995 the Newfoundland Government gave control of the St. Lawrence fluorpar properties to BML and later sold the assets to BML. Over $4 million has since been spent in feasibility work.
BML is presently joint-ventured with Glebe Mines Limited, a UK fluorspar producer, with Glebe providing technical support to the St. Lawrence project. In addition to Glebe, BML has its own technical and management group in St. Lawrence with me the general manager. BFL is a corporation owned by Canadian shareholders, the major shareholder of which is Mr. Gordon Stollery of Markham, Ontario, Canada.
Burin is presently seeking startup capital for its project. In light of the booming Chinese economy and a need to reduce fluorspar exports to compensate for an increasing internal requirements BML would like to talk with potential Chinese investors about investing in the Newfoundland fluorspar industry. BML believes there is an opportunity in St. Lawrence for the Chinese to offset its reduction in fluorspar exports at home with production from St. Lawrence. With a major interest in BML, the Chinese investor could potentially sell acidgrade fluorspar to its North American customers from St. Lawrence thus releasing some of its internal production for homeland use.
Some of the highlights and competitive advantages of BML's St. Lawrence fluorspar project are as follows:
2. Proximity to the Port
3. Deepwater Port
4. Mine Assets
5. Mine Life
6. Mill Assets
8. Extent of Resources
9. Low Cost Producer
10. Tax holiday
11. Available and trained workforce
12. Advance marketing
13. Chinese Factor
