Ontario has announced new legislation that aims to balance environmental protection with economic growth, as well as modernize mining claims. According to the province, the Aggregate Resources and Mining Modernization Act, if passed, would create a modern framework to help aggregate companies and communities across the province to continue building roads, hospitals, schools and other vital infrastructure projects with these resources.

Pragmatism, innovation, and people dominated the early discussions at the Maintenance, Engineering and Reliability/Mine Operations Conference recently in Sudbury.
The heads of Sudbury's three leading mine operations led off the first session of the two-day conference, discussing how to lead and manage in a volatile economy.
The conference brings together mine operators to share information on reducing costs and increasing productivity and improving safety and reliability in mining.
The new price tag on a plan to protect a major piece of Toronto's Port Lands from flooding has jumped to $1.25 billion — up $275 million over a previous estimate.
The hike is attributed to the complexity of remediation work that must be done on the contaminated soil on 290 hectares of eastern downtown, says a detailed study released recently by Waterfront Toronto.
The one company in the Ring of Fire still doing active exploration said it has already made a positive impact on neighbouring Indigenous communities.
Noront Resources has set a target of having over half of its staff comprised of Indigenous employees. So far, the company has met the target.
"Even at an early stage, where we are today in terms of exploration, we want the communities to realize some of those benefits through jobs, through training," said Ryan Weston, the VP of Exploration with Noront Resources.
The area could be facing a scary water situation this winter as groundwater levels continue to be low across local watersheds.
Officials with Quinte Conservation say water levels are remaining low in the majority of the watershed despite recent rainfall.
Christine McClure, water resources manager, said areas covered by the conservation authority received anywhere between 15 and 50 millimetres of rainfall, but the area is still in a Level 3 Low Water Condition.
The mining industry appears primed to enter a new era with a Collingwood company at the Forefront. MacLean Engineering, a manufacturer of mining equipment worldwide located on Raglan Street, will be producing a new line of battery-powered vehicles.
The company has been hired by Goldcorp, a mining company based in Vancouver, to develop the products, which will be used in its Borden Project near Chapleau, ON, in 2017.
A decade ago, environmentalists and the federal government agreed to revive a 150-mile stretch of California's second-longest river, an ambitious effort aimed at allowing salmon again to swim up to the Sierra Nevada foothills to spawn.
A major milestone is expected by the end of the month, when the U.S. Bureau of Reclamation says the stretch of the San Joaquin River will be flowing year-round for the first time in more than 60 years.
