Black River-Matheson is in the midst of an upswing in business growth spearheaded by our local mining industry. Not only do we have a number of mining extraction and exploration activities, but we are also developing a secondary mining manufacturing industry that will serve the needs of mining companies in the region and across Canada. Our "unfair advantage" in marketing terms is the fact that we are situated in the center of one of the world's most productive gold and base metal mining regions.
