Exploration lull
TB News Watch
Mining exploration in the province is down more than half from what it was a few years ago, says the head of the Ontario Prospectors Association. While Ontario announced $1 billion in exploration in 2011, OPA executive director Garry Clark that number included development. True exploration was really closer to $450 million.
