Talking Mining in Northern Ontario
THUNDER BAY – What is the real story on mining in Northwestern Ontario? Barbara Courte Elinesky talks about the state of mining in the region with Frank Pullia.
The discussion ranges from the Ring of Fire, the price of gold, the infrastructure issues for mining in the north, the Far North Act, and the future of training for new miners.
The scope of mining activities in the region is down according to Elinesky, who works with Women in Mining and has her own company in mining.
