Frank Smeenk, President & CEO Of KWG Resources stated “The Ring of Fire is an economically and socially transformative project that will benefit every citizen and community of Ontario, especially in the North, as well as all Canadians, for many generations. KWG Resources is happy to take a leadership role that helps end the political gridlock by proposing real and achievable solutions. I encourage all Ring of Fire supporters to participate in this process by having your voices heard and helping spread the message to every corner of this country. Together, we will get the Ring of Fire going”
“Without a doubt, the value of the Ring of Fire’s current and future potential mineral discoveries are in the hundreds of billions of dollars and these multi-generational mines will provide enormous wealth and employment opportunities for the surrounding First Nations communities. This is an economically and socially transformative project that will positively impact not only Ontario’s northwestern frontier but the entire country as well.”
KWG Resources says, “We Have A Plan To Get The Ring of Fire Going!”
After years of political indecision regarding transportation and funding of The Ring of Fire, KWG Resources is taking a pro-active approach by presenting a plan, backed by our own proposed bill, to end the gridlock and start moving the Ring of Fire forward for the benefit of all Northern Ontario communities, the Province and Canada.
HIGHLIGHTS OF OUR PROPOSED BILL
- Ontario already has a Northern Development Corporation. It is the Ontario Northland Transportation Commission(ONTC);
- The principal operating asset of the ONTC is the Ontario Northland Railroad (ONR), which has become starved of freight haulage.
The discoveries of chromite and nickel in the Ring of Fire could create the potential for much heavy-haulage freight business with which the ONR might become economically viable. The ONTC could be governed by residents of Northern Ontario, raise project financing via capital markets to add to heritage infrastructure facilities desired by northern residents of Ontario whose communities it serves.
This would enable the important participation by those communities, many of which are First Nations.
This would enable development to be undertaken with the necessary social licence together with the discipline of the capital markets, rather than from the public purse.
