It’s a long shot, but we could see some movement with the Ring of Fire. KWG, one of the miners at the site, has hired a Chinese railway specialist to examine the feasibility of building a rail line to the site.
KWG spokesman Bruce Hodgman says the line would go over a sand ridge and not muskeg. And if the link is feasible, Hodgman foresees Ontario Northland Railway hauling out the chromite.
Hodgman says KWG has been in regular contact with the ONR over the rail concept. Hodgman says this is a major turning point for the Ring of Fire.
If the rail company determines the line is feasible and builds the connecting link, it could be paid for the work by becoming a partner in the chromite project.
