Industry stakeholders: Ontario falling behind in mining
Northern Life
Ontario is falling behind as a mining jurisdiction, agreed several industry players who participated in a consultation forum organized by the Ministry of Northern Development and Mines recently. "There's no tacit recognition by this provincial government that it believes in mining," said Gino Chitaroni, president of the Northern Prospectors Association. "All we hear about is the Ring of Fire. Let me explain something about the Ring of Fire, it's not the only thing going on in this province."

High-grade results for Pure Gold
Northern Ontario Business
A winter drilling program at Red Lake by Pure Gold Mining has yielded some high-grade results. The Vancouver junior miner announced that it has intersected high-grade gold mineralization from its Beta Target, a second geologic structure being explored at its Madsen Gold project. The company is carrying out a 5,000-metre winter drilling program to explore prospective geologic structures in the Russet South and Fork Zone areas, with the goal of discovering new zones of near-surface, high-grade gold mineralization.

The Globe and Mail
U.S.-based Cliffs Natural Resources is set to sell its Ring of Fire assets to a small Canadian company for a fraction of the cost, a bitter end to the American miner's foray into Northern Ontario. Noront Resources will pay $20 million cash for Cliffs' chromite deposits, less than four per cent of the $550 million Cliffs paid to acquire and develop the properties.

Remains of historic Josephine Mine like abstract art
Sault This Week
My first time viewing the Josephine Iron mine was many years ago while flying over in a Beaver float plane with Air Dale flying service at Wawa Lake — 30-plus years ago when I was a fishing guide for a fly in fishing lodge. Little did I know at that time I would return, twice, to that old mine site many years later, by air and by ground to prospect and explore this location, rich in mining history.

Drought-ravaged Los Angeles looking to 'sponge up' every bit of rainwater
CBC News
A tow truck lifts a trashed car off the street. A shopping cart lies abandoned in the alley. This area of Los Angeles is what economists might call "economically disadvantaged." But one block in the heart of this struggling neighbourhood has gone through a $2.7 million retrofit. Now, on this block, instead of channelling the rainwater run-off to the sea, the city is collecting it.

The oil industry's struggle to tap into the bitumen carbonates
Financial Post
The government of Alberta held an unusual land sale recently when it sold 19,000 hectares of subsurface mineral rights beneath a Shell Canada oil-sands project near Peace River. Shell is in the process of building its 80,000 barrel-per-day Carmon Creek oil-sands project, from which the company expects to begin producing oil this year. However, Shell's mineral rights in the area only reach so deep.

Diamonds lift Northwest Territories' mining revenue
Resource Clips
Copper and tungsten value slipped but diamonds were enough to raise Northwest Territories’ mining revenues by 14 per cent last year. Citing new federal government stats, the NWT and Nunavut Chamber of Mines put the territory's 2014 mining production at $1.886 billion, a $227 million increase over the previous year. The rise came from $1.561 billion in diamond revenue, a 15 per cent jump over 2013.
