It's important to pause for reflection. When I look back over the last year, I'm proud of what the Ontario government has accomplished on behalf of Northern Ontario.
A year ago, our government released a refreshed Mineral Development Strategy which is guiding us as we navigate towards our goal of Ontario being the global leader in mining.
And, we're well on our way.
Scientists probing the deepest reaches of the Earth to find clues about the origins of life have found something unique: The world's oldest water.
While the Earth's most ancient source of H20 has since 2013 been known to exist in the Kidd Creek Mine in Timmins, ON, a team of researchers from the University of Toronto that went even deeper into the mine has come up with new findings.

Information is still being gathered from the McIntyre Powder clinics, which document the lives of miners who inhaled aluminum dust while working in mines across Canada. But an early trend shows a higher incidence of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) than in the general population.
ALS — also known as Lou Gehrig's disease — is a rapidly progressing neuromuscular disease that paralyzes muscles in the body, eventually leading to death. There is neither a cure nor an effective treatment for the disease, which affects about 2,500 to 3,000 Canadians.

Richmont Mines has announced the receipt of Amendments of both Air and Wastewater Environmental Compliance Approvals from the Ontario Ministry of Environment and Climate Change for its Island Gold Mine, located in northern Ontario. These Amendments support a potential ore mining and processing rate increase to an average of 1,100 tonnes per day as contemplated in the Preliminary Economic Assessment that is currently under review.
De Beers mining company has terminated a drilling project looking for potential diamond mines in Athabasca, and returned control of the project to CanAlaska Uranium.
According to CanAlaska president and CEO Peter Dasler, De Beers discovered 85 different areas with 300 target spots where diamonds could be found. The mining company drilled into seven sites, uncovering a "black mud" with magnetic properties. Dasler said that finding was very unusual and the organic material has been sent to the Saskatchewan Research Council and McMaster University for research and analysis.

Western Australia continues to stake its claim as the world's lithium mining capital, with Galaxy Resources waving off the first shipment from its recommissioned Mt. Cattlin mine near Ravensthorpe.
About 10,000 tonnes of lithium concentrate recently left Esperance Port aboard NY Trader 1 bound for Lianyungang Port in China.
The first shipment was valued at $6 million, with Galaxy planning production of 160,000 tonnes this year.
While scientists and policy experts debate the impacts of global warming, the Earth's soil is releasing roughly nine times more carbon dioxide to the atmosphere than all human activities combined. This huge carbon flux from soil, which is due to the natural respiration of soil microbes and plant roots, begs one of the central questions in climate change science, according to a press release from the University of New Hampshire. As the global climate warms, will soil respiration rates increase, adding even more carbon dioxide to the atmosphere and accelerating climate change?
