The value of mining exploration across the North is down, but exploration in the Porcupine Camp continues to be the busiest and most lucrative in all of Ontario. Mining exploration in the Porcupine Mining District alone showed a value of more than $19 million worth of exploration work that was carried out on 6,709 claims during 2016.
That was part of the report tabled recently by Ed van Hees, Ph.D.; the regional resident geologist for the Ministry of Northern Development and Mines in Timmins.
After more than 120 years of prospectors staking claims in Ontario, the old and honoured practice of putting a claim post into the ground is soon to be over.
A new system of staking claims online by clicking on a computer map through the Ministry of Northern Development and Mines (MNDM) is scheduled to come on stream next winter.
One can only imagine what Jack Wilson, Benny Hollinger and Sandy McIntyre would say. You could even add the names of John Larche and Don McKinnon to that list of legendary claim stakers and mine finders who lived in glory days of gold prospecting in Timmins.
Northern Ontario Business
A new technology developed by Cementation in North Bay is holding promise as an alternative for bringing ore mined underground up to the surface.
Created as a more efficient, cost-effective option to existing models that employ ramps or vertical shaft systems, "injection joisting" transports ore to the surface using a pump-driven pipeline loop.
Cementation president Roy Slack said the technology has real potential to bring substantial value to the industry.
The walls start suddenly to shake and groan.
First, it's a dull rumbling sound, like a heavy truck where no truck should be. Then comes a banging and clanging that threaten to rend the walls and the ceiling of your office.
Up on Parliament Hill, the massive stone blocks tremble and overhead light fixtures rattle, but nothing collapses.
Welcome to Ottawa's great earthquake. It's an imagined scenario, a tale of "what if?"
The Sudbury Star
Workplace Safety North is the newest addition to Sudbury's vibrant downtown neighbourhood.
"In addition to being the home of Ontario Mine Rescue headquarters, the new location at 235 Cedar St. offers a state-of-the-art learning environment with additional classroom training facilities for ministry-approved health and safety training, including mining supervisor common core, working at heights, and mine rescue," Candys Ballanger-Michaud, WSN's president and CEO, said in a release. "We plan to move in by the end of May."
London Free Press
Proving the old saying that candy really is bad for you, London's old McCormick factory site is so toxic it will cost $8.1 million to clean up, and taxpayers could be on the hook for $2.5 million of that.
The parcel of land on Dundas Street will need to have soil removed and cleaned, to make way for a proposed mixed-use development by Sierra Construction of Woodstock, who bought the old factory for $1, says a report heading to the city's planning and environment committee.
The Chronicle Journal
Emily Cross is kind of a time traveller this month. She'll follow up a trip into history with a journey into the future to talk about the past's influence on the world of tomorrow.
The Grade 11 Hammarskjold High School student stretched her legs out and shook off the last of the jetlag recently after arriving home from Europe to witness ceremonies to mark the 100th anniversary of the Battle of Vimy Ridge.
The teen cannot put her luggage away just yet because she will be heading to Washington, D.C., soon for the X-STEM Science and Engineering Festival.
