In partnership with:

Sitting in the ecologically fragile Hudson Bay Lowlands, the rich deposits of chromite and other metals in Ontario's North are waiting to be mined, but lack of infrastructure is just one of the challenges in opening up these sites to mining development. The remote nature of the deposits sets the need for road or rail development to access the sites as well as effective mine design to ensure impact on the surrounding environment is minimized. Partnerships, consultation and involvement from the area's First Nations communities is essential to the success project. What will the Ring of Fire mine look like? How will communities engage with the project? Will opening Ontario's North begin a generation of prosperity for the region?

This 2-hour guided tour explores the stories buried in the rocks under our feet, showcases various geological and historical mining sites, and highlights how the local geology and mining has shaped Greater Sudbury.
