Cliffs Natural Resources Inc. has commenced the environmental assessment process for the Black Thor chromite deposit, McFaulds Lake area. A pre-feasibility study has been completed to more accurately determine project details and project investment. Environmental studies continue, as well as further diamond drilling on the Black Label deposit. Bulk sampling of the Black Thor was completed and processed. A diamond drilling program on the Big Daddy chromite deposit was coordinated with KWG Resources Inc.
