De Beers halts exploration of diamond mine near Attawapiskat, ON
from CBC News
The De Beers diamond company has ceased exploration of the Tango extension near the Victor mine due to local pushback. The Victor mine is located in the James Bay lowlands of northern Ontario, and is the province's only diamond mine. DeBeers is hoping to extend mining operations into a nearby deposit called Tango, but first needs to determine it's feasibility. The company said the exploration is required as the Victor mine enters its final years.
