Ring of Fire Developments
The Ring of Fire is one of the richest Canadian mineral discoveries in more than a generation. At this time, the Greenstone Municipal Economic Development Department is working diligently to prepare the region's infrastructure for the impending surge of mineral activity.
Ring of Fire developments are creating opportunities for expansion across Northwestern Ontario, and as the base-case location for a transload facility, the Municipality of Greenstone is expected to experience growth.
