This week many Indigenous communities, including Neskantaga and Muskrat Dam First Nations have locked down their communities because of the COVID-19 pandemic. At the same time, the mining company New Gold has agreed to purchase five million shares in Northern Superior Resources, giving New Gold a strategic foothold in the company. This investment is helpful for Northern Superior Resources in order to fund the exploration of their Ti-pa-haa-kaa-ning (TPK) property near the Ring of Fire where gold, silver, and copper have been found. Currently the company hopes to begin exploration in Summer 2020 though that may be delayed because of the COVID-19 pandemic.
