Mining Matters


CTV News Northern Ontario's Mining Matters feature:


From ancient copper mines on the shores of Lake Superior and Michigan to the silver fields of Cobalt, the gold strikes in Kirkland Lake and Timmins and distant sites all over the north, mining has been a part of life in northern Ontario for most of our history.

In this feature called Mining Matters, we take a look at how much it means to the people of northeastern Ontario from the beginning, when a prospector stakes a property to today when COVID-19 has changed the way the work is done.
