REPORT FROM THE ONTARIO PROSPECTORS ASSOCIATION A nother field season is upon us. Markets have been in rollercoaster mode. The forecasters are saying that gold is going up or down as always. The base metal markets are looking good, and we only have one VMS producer left in Ontario! The Ministry of Northern Development and Mines (MNDM) is in the midst of changing the claims acquisition method from ground staking to map selection. This has been the main thrust of discussion over the last few years and will continue to be until the map selection process is finalized. This is something that the Ontario explorer needs to follow and contribute input to help guide the changes. MNDM is also renewing the Mineral Development Strategy. There have been numerous meetings and discussions to get explorers' opinions on the direction and content of the Strategy. The OPA believes this is a very critical document that will help guide MNDM and explorers. The OPA believes Ontario has great mineral potential that requires explorers to think slightly outside the box. The length of time from discovery to production is variable and can be illustrated by the various projects that are progressing across the Province. Examples of these are found from the east to the west. Looking at Lake Shore Gold that was first explored in the early 1900s; or New Gold's, Rainy River Project that was a successful Ontario Geological Survey initial discovery in the 1980s; or Borden Lake, that Goldcorp bought, that was pursued since the late 1980s. We need to remember to keep an open mind and look at all the rocks for potential mineralization. The OPA wishes all explorers the best of luck in their projects and hope to see new discoveries over the summer.
