Investment Opportunity: Fuel Peat

Fuel peat is a sustainable resource and consists of the decomposing plant material found under layers of Sphagnum moss. Northern Ontarios harvest potential is estimated at more than 8.5 million dry tonnes per year, which comprises nearly 27% of the nation's total peat resources. The Greenstone region is estimated to contain 1.9 billion cubic metres of peat, located in deposits that are 2 metres deep, plus an additional 1.9 billion cubic metres in more shallow concentrations.
