UPDATE 1-Consolidated Thompson carrier suspends railway ops

* Railway operations suspended due to heavy rainfall

* Says suspension does not affect Bloom Lake production

Dec 20 (BestGrowthStock) – Canada’s Consolidated Thompson Iron
Mines Ltd (CLM.TO: ) said its rail transportation carrier
suspended operations for about 14 days, but that it would not
affect production at its flagship Bloom Lake property in
Quebec.

The suspension was due to damage to some parts of the
railway caused by heavy rain and extreme wind in the North
Shore sector of Quebec, the Montreal-based miner said. QNS&L
Railway, the carrier, is seeking to reinstate the service.
Consolidated Thompson is maintaining normal production
activity at Bloom Lake, it said.

“The only impact is the postponement of loading one vessel
to the following month,” Chief Executive Brian Tobin said in a
statement.

The stock, which has gained 20 percent in value since the
company posted its first-ever quarterly profit in November,
closed at C$12.97 on Friday on the Toronto Stock Exchange.
