Exploration and Co-Operation: When Mining Companies and First Nations Work Together

Since joining Northern Superior Resources in 2002 as President and CEO, I have applied my strong belief that First Nations must be meaningfully consulted and actively engaged in exploration programs. To respect the traditional land uses of these communities is absolutely essential. At the same time, it is also very important for First Nation communities to understand what exploration is all about and the limitations of a junior mining company.
