In March 2022, Australian-based Wyloo Metals purchased Noront Resources’ mineral assets in the Ring of Fire in a $616.9-million deal. Now called Ring of Fire Metals, the company owns the rights to the high-grade Eagle’s Nest deposit, which contains nickel, copper, platinum and palladium deposits. 

“The Ring of Fire has been referred to as a game changer, and a promising mining opportunity for Canada as a whole,” said Anthony Davis, chair of the chamber board. “As the Ring of Fire is of great interest to many of our members, we are excited to be able to bring Stephen Flewelling to Sudbury to shed some insight on the company’s plans for the Eagle’s Nest project. The critical minerals found within the Ring of Fire will help create economic prosperity, and as the world continues to develop more sophisticated technology, the need for these critical minerals will only escalate.” 

The President’s Series Luncheon will take place at the Holiday Inn, 1696 Regent St. Registration and networking starts at 11:30 a.m. Lunch will be served at noon.
