REPORT FROM THE ONTARIO PROSPECTORS ASSOCIATION
he Ontario Prospectors Association has been actively involved in lobbying the Ontario Government on the continued changes to the Mining Act. These changes have been on going over the last few years and will continue for the next three to four years. The goal of the changes is to bring clarity, certainty and transparency to the exploration process in Ontario. The OPA will continue to work, for the explorer, to keep Ontario one of the best locations to explore! This spring the OPA, Northwestern Ontario Prospectors Association and Northern Prospectors Association delivered extremely successful regional symposia in April. The attendance at the events (>640 and >310 people respectively) exceeded records. The organizers would like to thank all the attendees, supporters, volunteers, speakers and exhibitors for their commitment of time. The record attendance is a strong indicator of the success explorers have had in the past year. The OPA is hoping that the Ontario Exploration and Geoscience Symposium (OEGS) (Nov. 6 and 7) in Sudbury will be highlighting the continued successes of explorers across Ontario. A large volume of exploration and development dollars in Ontario has been focused on the redeﬁnition of known producing belts and poorly understood historical showings. The success of this exploration is noted across the Province from Red Lake (Rubicon), Atikokan (Osisko), Geraldton (Premier), Detour Lake (Detour) and Kirkland Lake (KL Gold + Queenston) to name a few. The success has been fueled by increased commodity prices, committed management and strong geological modeling. The number of discovered tons of economic mineralization proves that Ontario is the place to explore. The Ontario Prospectors Association exists for its members and continues to lobby to keep Ontario as the best place to explore for economic mineralization. Good luck with the exploration season, hopefully we can highlight your new discovery at the November OEGS in Sudbury.
