The Ring of Fire may be the single largest resource development opportunity Ontario will ever see. The only problem is the Ring's mineral deposits are located hundreds of kilometres from the nearest road. The Province has put aside $1 billion to build a set of roads to the Ring, but everything from negotiations with local Indigenous communities to complex infrastructure requirements have to be sorted first. Noront owns over 70% of all mining claims in the Ring of Fire. Noront's CEO, Alan Coutts, joins us to discuss this once in a generation opportunity.
