The Ring of Fire is one of the most exciting mineral developments in Canada. The proposed site is located 280km north of Nakina, the northernmost Ward of the Municipality of Greenstone.
The Environmental Assessment process is well underway for Cliffs Natural Resources proposed Black Thor mine located in the Ring of Fire. Cliffs describes its Black Thor claim as a world class chromite deposit, and anticipates production will commence in 2015.
Mining was the reason for the founding of the communities in the Beardmore-Geraldton Camp, and mining will be the reason for their resurgence in the years ahead.
