ONTARIO – Toronto-based Noront Resources has quietly reaffirmed its plans for the Eagle's Nest nickel-copper-platinum group metals mine in the Ring of Fire. The company remains on track to deliver its environmental assessment by the end of 2013.
"Noront's schedule is based on the Eagle's Nest project being the first mine developed in the Ring of Fire," said Noront president and CEO Alan Coutts. "Our projections have not been dependent on the development plans of other mining companies. We look forward to participating in the proposed development corporation with the First Nations, and the provincial and federal governments to advance infrastructure planning for the region. As we near completion of our EA process, clarity regarding the timing and financing of this infrastructure will become paramount."
