The Prospectors & Developers Association of Canada (PDAC) has recognized Noront Resources’ accomplishments and commitment to social initiatives in Northern Ontario with its 2015 Environmental and Social Responsibility Award.
It is Noront’s vision to be a leader in developing mutually beneficial relationships with Aboriginal communities in and around Northern Ontario’s Ring of Fire. Since 2009, the company has worked to expand its community outreach and engagement which includes programs in education, skills training, youth programming and economic development in Northern Ontario. PDAC has particularly acknowledged its Ring of Fire Aboriginal Training Alliance, Mining Matters program, and DAREarts movie making youth camp partnership.
The annual PDAC awards showcase the achievements of companies, individuals and groups in the mineral exploration and mining sector by highlighting the best in domestic and international mineral discovery, mine development, Aboriginal achievement, environmental and social responsibility, and distinguished service.
