Among the companies present at the Red Cloud Investment forum was Red Pine Exploration a company that has among it properties one known as its Wawa Gold Project in Wawa, Ontario.

“Wawa was one of the first mining areas in Ontario back in the 1880s and 1890s when the transcontinental railway line was put through,” explained Conrad Dix, the Senior Project Manager for Red Pine Exploration. “The area is a bit out of the lime light but the recent purchase of the Probe Mines property near Chapleau by Goldcorp there has renewed interest in the area.”
