Mining Day on the Hill was an opportunity for Greater Sudbury Mayor Brian Bigger to rub elbows with the lead player in the Ring of Fire.
Bigger was part of a delegation from Sudbury who headed to Ottawa for the Mining Association of Canada’s (MAC) industry-government networking event on Nov. 21. The annual get-together attracts mining executives, companies and federal bureaucrats to discuss policy and showcase technology.
In a Nov. 30 news release, Bigger said while there he bumped into Noront Resources president-CEO Alan Coutts to talk “about the importance of mining in our community, which was evident by the enthusiasm and representation that evening by our industry partners who are all optimistic about the future of mining and innovation in Greater Sudbury.”
Sudbury, Sault Ste. Marie, Timmins and Thunder Bay are competing to be the host community for Noront’s proposed ferrochrome processing plant. Noront sent out request for proposal (RFP) package to the four cities in early November. The deadline for submissions is Feb. 2.
