Drilling for gold

Normally you don't see anything bigger than a fishing boat on Porcupine Lake, but this week there is a 50-foot barge complete with a diamond-drilling rig aboard. It was indeed a bit of surprise for local residents. It's there as part of an exploration drilling program by a Toronto-based exploration company. See the full details in The Timmins Times this week.
