I wonder if the ceasation of Huron Central service will impact the movement of nickel ore concentrate from the Eagle Mine mill in Humboldt.

Does anyone know if the current routing of the concentrate includes using HC from Sault Ste. Marie, ON to Sudbury?

Some of the nickel ore goes to SSM and ends up in Sudsbury (did I get the name right?). But I don't know if it goes via HC.
