I received this picture from a friend. It was said that it is a new ore railroad in Canada. What can you tell me about it?

In a nut shell: No permit for expansion and there is no railway.

And they definitely don't have mowed lawns on Baffin Island.

Is that the GE test track outside Erie PA?

They have been talking about building a railway from their mine to their port. The idea was first put forward when they were first planning the mine several years ago.
They did build a haul road for their trucks and have been using that, but a railway would allow them to increase production.
At the same time, the government has imposed some very strong environmental protection laws.
They have to figure that part out before they can get permits.
