Government expectations are that environmental approval and feasibility studies on the two sites will be completed by late 2012/early 2013, that production decisions will be made by early to mid 2013, Adidas Originals Rose Gold
NorOnt Resources is looking at a similar startup Adidas Crazy 8 Los Angeles Lakers
The concentrate would be pumped through a 100 km underground pipeline to a processing site near Webequie, where a filtering and drying plant will be constructed to treat the concentrate the transfer it to trucks for transfer to a railhead site.
Cliffs plans to refine ore and concentrate into ferrochrome metal, a product sold to stainless steel producers, in an enclosed 300 megawatt electric furnace 300 MW being enough electricity to power a city of 300,000.
the potential of the remote mineral rich Ring of Fire in the James Bay Lowlands, about 500 kilometres northeast of Thunder Bay.
The Cliffs' vision is to begin with two open pit mines, which they can work for 10 to 15 years, and then go underground for another 15 to 20 years.
"It's remote with significant infrastructure challenges but it's a world class chromite deposit," states Cliffs on its website trumpeting the project.
The facility would have the capacity to produce1,500 tonnes of ferrochrome daily, along with 2,100 tonnes of slag.
NorOnt is talking one million tonnes of nickel, copper, platinum and palladium ore annually through underground mining at its site then processing it into 150,000 tonnes of concentrate.
Cliffs Natural Resources, known in these parts as the primary iron ore supplier of Essar Steel Algoma, wants to begin mining and processing a world class chromite deposit within The Ring within five years, by 2015.
Can the Sault plug into Ring of Fire potential
Cliffs will need 30 MW of electricity to power the mine, processor and mine site, likely diesel, but the possibility exists of Cliffs and NorOnt, which needs 25 MW of power for its site, joining forces on a shared transmission system, which could also benefit remote First Nations.
Chromite, which takes 3 billion years to form, is the ore component to chromium metal, used mainly as an alloy to produce stainless steel, and there is no significant North American high grade chromite deposit, it usually comes from South Africa or Finland.
It will need 260 kilometres of new road to access the site, which would accommodate a minimum 300 personnel, then large haul trucks, with 70 tonne capacity, would deliver ore and concentrate from the mine to the CN railhead at Nakina.
The challenges include the region only being accessible by aircraft at present, hundreds of kilometres of railways and roadways need to be constructed, as well as campsites, power generation and processing mills.
Between 50 and 100 heavy rucks would be on the road daily at peak production, say Cliffs officials, and there's also hope of a nearly 350 km railway north of Nakina into the mine site.
It has the potential to be one of the most significant mineral developments in Ontario in over a century.
"Government and developers are definitely interested but there are huge infrastructure issues."
According to the province, says Dodds, "it will be a couple more years before hard decisions are made . . . there is still enormous uncertainty on how to move forward.
The value of the Ring of Fire chromite, according to one report, had one of five deposits worth $30 billion "still in the ground."
Dodds believes the Sault has several of attractive assets for mine developers looking for off site production, value added facilities, including location, Essar Algoma, loading docks and a skilled workforce, but in the meantime "will need to keep reminding the decision makers why we should be given consideration."
It's a vast deposit of more than 5,100 square kilometres of chromite, copper, zinc, gold and kimberlite and communities throughout Northern Ontario are scrambling to make themselves known to the development's major players.
that two year construction will begin in mid 2013 and that the sites will go operational 2015 2016.
Capreol, near Sudbury, is the preferred option for the ferrochrome plant at present but Cliffs is reportedly still evaluating several alternative sites because of the high cost of electricity in an electricity intensive manufacturing process.
The "big prize" outside the Ring of Fire boundaries is Cliffs' ferrochrome production facility and a minimum 400 good paying employment opportunities.
NorOnt, which will process its concentrate at existing smelting/refining facilities, needs a more than 100 km all weather road from its filtering and drying plant to Pickle Lake.
"We are watching and listening but it's still too early in the process to determine if, or how, Sault Ste. Marie could be a player in the Ring of Fire," said Tom Dodds, recently appointed CEO of Adidas Originals Los Angeles Black/Black/Whi the Sault Economic Development Corp.
They are the region's pioneers, the most advanced of The Ring's opportunities, both having invested more than $150 million already into exploration, preliminary study and assessment, with no guarantee of sinking a shaft or opening a pit.
timeline for mining and processing nickel, copper, platinum and palladium ore.
Of 15 separate mineral deposits discovered within The Ring to date, including eight copper zinc and five chromite, copper and chromite are the most significant development opportunities.
"If the price of electricity is an impediment I imagine the government could crunch numbers to make it more attractive, maybe offsetting costs in other areas, rather than lose the opportunity altogether," said Dodds.
Think of what the discovery of nickel meant to Sudbury, and gold to Red Lake and Timmins, that is Adidas Los Angeles White On Feet
The province is considering public private partnerships for access roads and other infrastructure at both sites.
