Northern Ontario Business
A once-dormant Temagami aggregate pit could become a beehive of activity this year.
Randy Becker, a member of the Temagami First Nation and the new operator of the Frontenac pit, has ambitious plans to use the property as an active exploration site for base metals, establish an aggregate extraction operation, and utilize the site as a training ground for future Indigenous diamond drilling assistants and heavy equipment operators.
An Orillia infrastructure project is at the top of the list of 74 projects announced for funding by the federal and provincial governments Friday.
Almost $1.5 million will be provided to the city from the feds for the upgrades of the city's wastewater-treatment centre, which includes the construction of a tertiary filter and blower buildings, as well as tertiary treatment to meet Lake Simcoe effluent phosphorus limits. The province is contributing nearly $750,000, as part of an agreement that would typically see the federal government contribute 50 per cent of the funding for a project, and the province and the municipality make up the rest.
The Sudbury Star
A conference on the impact of exposure to cancer-causing substances in Ontario mining will be held in Sudbury on July 11.
The day will focus on cancers caused by past exposures to diesel engine exhaust and radon gas, and the steps that can be taken to prevent future cancers among miners.
Speakers will include local and international experts on mining, cancer, and exposure controls; health and safety system professionals; and a widow whose husband died from occupational disease.
A plan by Pele Mountain Resources to mine uranium in northern Ontario while at the same time processing rare earths has fizzled.
The Toronto-based junior said earlier this month that it sold its flagship Eco Ridge uranium property at Elliott Lake, ON, to privately-held Enirgi Group. The six-division conglomerate is developing a lithium brine project at the Salar del Rincon in the province of Salta, Argentina.
City councillors are taking a major step towards cleaning up Mohawk lake.
Councillors this week voted 6-4 in favour of a $6.55 million agreement with the federal government for the clean-up. Their decision will come before council for final approval on June 27.
Under the deal, the city will contribute $4.55 million to the project, while Ottawa will contribute $2 million.
"This is good for Brantford," said Coun. Richard Carpenter, who was among councillors urging support for the project. "It's the right thing to do."
Canadian Occupational Safety
Claude Fortin was an electrician in the mining industry. He worked for Iamgold — Mine Doyon for 16 years. In 2005, in his mid-forties, he was diagnosed with lung cancer. He had lived a healthy life, was active and a non-smoker. His doctors concluded he was suffering from an occupational disease. The cancer had been caused by the diesel emissions produced by the heavy equipment that surrounded him every day at work.
The magma reservoir beneath an active volcano turns out to decidedly cooler and more solid than previously thought, a finding that could help scientists predict eruptions more accurately.
By studying zircon crystals spewed forth by New Zealand's Mount Tarawera volcano seven centuries ago, researchers led by University of California geoscientist Kari Cooper suggest that established textbook conceptualizations of what magma reservoir looks like need to to change.
