Large mining companies are now initiating multi-million dollar exploration efforts in Canada. Centerra Gold Inc., Goldcorp Inc., and Agnico Eagle Mines Ltd. are just some of the big names expected to lead the way for gold prospecting in the region. “We have a lot of evidence that there is gold in the area,” Agnico chief executive Sean Boyd commented regarding his company’s plan to move eight drill rigs and around 80 miners to its arctic location.
