Birth of Hard Rock Mining

Silver mining with a cobalt by-product began in 1903 and extended to 1989 before low silver prices at the time (US$6/oz) caused the last operating mines to be closed. At its peak, the region had more than 100 operating underground mines and one open-pit mine in a 100km radius area around the Town of Cobalt, Ontario, including Gowganda in the northwest and Silver Centre in the southeast.
Exploration again resumed in 2011 and today, Nord Precious Metals is the most advanced exploration/development company in the Camp.

Partners in Development

The company has title to the 7,800 hectare (78 km sq.) property formerly known as the Castle Silver Mine. The property is acknowledged to be situated within First Nations traditional territory. The company has agreements with Matachewan First Nation, Temagami First Nation, and the Teme-Augama Anishnabai.
The agreements were entered into in order to ensure responsible and progressive development of exploration projects. The company will continue with these agreements and ensure any development carried out at the Castle cobalt silver property will be consistent with the previously signed agreements.

Environmental responsibility is a critical feature of today's world and Nord Precious Metals has embraced this responsibility in many ways, including reclamation activities at the past-producing Castle Mine, and protecting the environment during exploration.
Also, in its development of the proprietary Re-2Ox processing technology which is a unique, clean, environmentally compliant technology unmatched in the base metals and recycling industries.
