Mining Exploration Opportunities in Timmins, Ontario, Canada
Throughout its history, Timmins has been known globally as one of the richest mineral producing areas in the world. The community lies at the heart of the Abitibi Greenstone Belt, which contains some of the world’s largest deposits of gold, silver, copper and zinc. In addition, platinum group metals and industrial minerals such as talc can be found in the region. The Ontario Geological Survey has also indicated that the Timmins region hosts various Critical Minerals and Rare Earth Elements.
Exploration activities have, and continue to be, a main driver of initiatives that support mines in operation or under
development. In fact, there is a mix of more than 50 mines within a four-hour drive of Timmins and almost half of all mines in operation or under development in Northern Ontario are located in the Timmins region.
With a regional population of 89,952, Timmins boasts a well-established and sophisticated infrastructure, an experienced
labour pool and a broad base of technical and support services for the mining exploration industry.
The city-owned Victor M. Power Airport is a ten-minute drive from the city centre and provides a convenient gateway to regional, national and international markets. Specifically, it’s less than a 90-minute flight to Toronto at both Billy Bishop Toronto City Airport and Pearson International airport providing access to corporate head offices to raise capital and secure investment in projects.
The Province of Ontario is a mining friendly jurisdiction and as part of its ongoing modernization of the Mining Act, the Ministry of Energy, Northern Development and Mines (MENDM) implemented a province-wide online claim staking and claims management system. MENDM’s Ontario Geological survey (OGS) regularly publishes maps, reports and digital data on the province’s geography. OGS services update the geological knowledge and inform assessments of mineral and energy potential,
mineral investment, and land-use planning decisions.
