The fourth annual Northern Ontario Mining Showcase has expanded once again and will now host 90 Northern Ontario mining supply and service companies from across the region in the largest exhibit at PDAC 2017.
Taking place Mar. 5-8 in Toronto, ON, PDAC is one of the largest annual international mining conference and trade show of its kind in the world.
The City of Temiskaming Shores is leading this important project in partnership with the communities of Cochrane, Hearst, Kapuskasing and newest partner, the Nishnawbe Aski Development Fund.

A mine developer with a northwestern Ontario lithium deposit has found a production partner in Australia.
Avalon Advanced Materials has signed a non-binding letter of intent with Lepidico of Perth, Australia. Under the agreement, Avalon would sell Lepidico a minimum of 15,000 tonnes a year of concentrate produced from its planned demonstration-scale pilot plant near Kenora.
The go-ahead has been given for the first British expedition to collect meteorites in Antarctica.
Most of the space rocks now in collections worldwide have been picked up on the continent.
The region's great expanse of ice makes searching for the blackened remains of objects that have fallen from the sky a particularly productive exercise.
But the U.K. venture will target a strangely underrepresented class of meteorites — those made of iron.
De Beers is shelving immediate plans to study an expansion project at a remote northern Ontario diamond mine after failing to get support from a neighboring aboriginal community, a "disappointing" setback for the world's top diamond producer, the mine's manager said.
The isolated Victor mine in the James Bay lowlands produces some 600 carats of diamonds annually and is scheduled to stop production in late 2018 and close in early 2019, De Beers Canada general manager James Kirby recently told Reuters.
Consulting firm Deloitte has published what it says will be the top 10 global trends in the mining industry this year.
The annual report, called Tracking the Trends, was compiled after about 70 mining professionals were interviewed about issues impacting the industry.
Phil Hopwood, Deloitte's global mining leader and one of the authors of the report, says digitization will have one of the biggest impacts on mining around the world in 2017.
That is where companies integrate technology into all aspects of their existing operating systems.
Scientists have recorded the events that unfolded after the Earth's magnetic shield was breached.
Openings in the planet's magnetic field are not uncommon, but it is rarer to get the opportunity to gather data while such an event is in progress.
A cosmic ray monitoring facility recorded a burst of cosmic rays associated with the opening.
The magnetic field breach was the result of charged particles from the Sun striking the Earth at high speed.
The deep ocean needs a new international policy for seabed resource management and billions of dollars worth of new surveillance gear to keep tabs on waters more than 200 metres beneath the waves, according to a consortium of scientists from around the globe, including Canada.
"Increasing exploration and industrial exploitation of the vast and fragile deep-ocean environment for a wide range of resources (e.g., oil, gas, fisheries, new molecules, and soon, minerals) raises global concerns about potential ecological impacts," says the strategy paper published recently in the journal Science.
An attempt to drill into the heart of a volcano in the southwest of Iceland is now complete.
Geologists have penetrated 4,659 metres down, creating the deepest-ever volcanic borehole.
Their aim is to tap into the steam at the bottom of the well to provide a source of geothermal energy. They recorded temperatures of 427C, but believe the hole will get hotter when they widen it in the coming months.
