RING OF FIRE

The Ring of Fire is set to be the largest resource infrastructural project in Canada second only to the oil sands of Alberta.  Situated in the James Bay Lowlands of Northern Ontario, this 5,000-square-kilometer crescent shape deposit of chromite, nickel, and other platinum group metals is thought to be worth as much as $50-billion and will require massive investment in infrastructure and housing to make the mining project operational.  The area’s economy and ecology will be drastically changed in the coming years.
