CEO Corina Moore mused about opportunities for rail network
Corina Moore knows it’s not happening now, but the Ontario Northland CEO is excited about the potential the Ring of Fire has for the Crown corporation.
“It would be the 50 years (of) sustainability for Ontario Northland,” said Moore during a luncheon at the Canadian Club meeting in North Bay on Jan. 24.
“It is a very huge opportunity. It is a number of years out and there are lots of different other mining opportunities that are closer in turn that we are working with.”
Moore noted that chromite miner Noront Resources, which has the largest land package in the Ring of Fire, has received tenders from Sault Ste. Marie, Timmins, Sudbury and Thunder Bay to host the facility that would process chromite from its planned mine.
“So those tenders from those four communities are going into Noront on Jan. 31, and they will be making a determination of which community will have that smelter,” Moore said.
