The parties envision a large, underground mining operation and a railroad to transport raw chromite ore for further processing. Representatives of both KWG and Marten Falls are headed to China next month to discuss details of the feasibility study prepared last year for KWG by China Railway First Survey and Design Institute Group. The $4 billion railroad would cross the traditional territories of the Marten Falls, Webequie and Aroland First Nations.
KWG says the partnership is expected to include the Aroland and Webequie First Nations as well as the more remote members of the Matawa Council of First Nations. The company also says it will extend an offer of partnership to other mining companies with interests in the Ring of Fire.
