"Without a doubt, the value of the Ring of Fire's current and future
potential mineral discoveries are in the hundreds of billions of dollars and
these multi-generational mines will provide enormous wealth and employment
opportunities for the surrounding First Nations communities. This is an
economically and socially transformative project that will positively impact
not only Ontario's northwestern frontier but the entire country as well."

THE JOB CREATION PLAN

We Have A Plan To Get The Ring of Fire Going!

After years of political indecision regarding transportation and funding of The Ring of Fire, KWG Resources is taking a pro-active approach by presenting a plan, backed by our own proposed bill, to end the gridlock and start moving the Ring of Fire forward for the benefit of all Northern Ontario communities, the Province and Canada.

HIGHLIGHTS OF OUR PROPOSED BILL


--  Ontario already has a Northern Development Corporation. It is the
    Ontario Northland Transportation Commission (ONTC).
--  The principal operating asset of the ONTC is the Ontario Northland
    Railroad (ONR), which has become starved of freight haulage.
--  The discoveries of chromite and nickel in the Ring of Fire could create
    the potential for much heavy-haulage freight business with which the ONR
    might become economically viable.
--  The ONTC could be governed by residents of Northern Ontario, raise
    project financing via capital markets to add to heritage infrastructure
    facilities desired by northern residents of Ontario whose communities it
    serves.
--  This would enable the important participation by those communities, many
    of which are First Nations.
--  This would enable development to be undertaken with the necessary social
    licence together with the discipline of the capital markets, rather than
    from the public purse.

WE NEED YOUR VOTE, YOUR VOICE TO HELP MAKE IT HAPPEN

KWG Resources is appealing to three important and distinct groups for their support.
