Can Canadian Mining Journal dive deeper into the Ring of Fire. Find out who is behind its delay … government, First Nations, or other. It is Canada’s next prized jewel and I have always felt that both foreign governments and elitists have been controlling its destiny by manipulating our own pathetic government. Section 232 is a U.S. scam strictly aimed at Canada designed to make us say “uncle”. Why? Simply because everything they need to be self-sufficient is right in our own backyard. Three commodities of particular interest “water, uranium and chromite” … along with a host of rare earths.
The next “commodity supercycle” will soon be upon us. Follow Noront Resources closely; they will be the next big thing and opening up a whole mining district. There is now a Finnish presence in Canada (Outotec) that appears to be signalling that the chromite Noront has is about to come into play. A road will be good for Noront’s PGMs and nickel, but if chromite is the name of the game then rail. There is a lot more to this than meets the eye.
