Our Purpose Unifies Us
Noront’s purpose and approach are the foundation for a unique culture. Our purpose unifies us in pursuing a common strategy, which is to develop the first mine in the Ring of Fire in true partnership with local Indigenous communities, contractors, suppliers and the communities of Northern Ontario.
Our approach is to assemble, first and foremost, an excellent team from a variety of disciplines and cultures and to focus our efforts on the highly prospective Ring of Fire region. We care about, listen to, and are active in our communities. We believe our efforts are part of the solution to improving First Nation health and prosperity. We are highly competent and ethical professionals, constantly looking for better, more cost-effective and sustainable ways to do business.
We Are Innovators and We Get Things Done
We do not want to be all things to all people. We believe that the Ring of Fire has the potential to host world class deposits and that this potential is just beginning to be realized. By taking a focused approach, we will become experts in the region from both a technical and social point of view. We have already become leaders in mine and infrastructure development and have formed a deep understanding of the exploration potential in the Ring of Fire.
We engage with and listen to local communities and our Eagle’s Nest Project design reflects their input. We have also developed strong, long lasting relationships; people know who we are, what we stand for and can trust us.
Through our approach we will seek not only to build the first mine in the Ring of Fire, but to set a new industry standard as a mining company that is considered truly inclusive and sustainable.
