Letter from Richard Nemis $

Posted by AGORACOM-JC at 11:54 AM on Monday, March 11th, 2019

I was introduced to a young man a couple of years ago who kept my secretary busy by phoning repeatedly asking for a short meeting to introduce his company. She said that he was so persistent that without confirming with me, she set a time for him and I to finally meet. That young man was Scott Purkis and the company was Agoracom. I would like now to take this opportunity to say a heart felt sincere thank you to Scott and the whole Agoracom team. Without the communication through the Agoracom system thousands in the retail investor community would have been left in the dark with respect to these recent Noront events. The people who write on the Agoracom site, are one fabulous group of loyal and faithful Noront followers. Their interacting with the Noront team has kept the interest of the project up front in the investor world.

In the past, minority shareholders did not have a voice against the much larger funds and shareholders, but you as a group became a force, an entity unto yourselves and indeed, a force to be reckoned with. You should all be very proud of all your efforts. No longer will the retail investors be the pawn in a chess game, there now lies the opportunity to make it to the other end of the board and become a King.

I would like everybody to believe in the R.O.F. as a real project with astronomical potential. I am sad that I will no longer be at the helm, However, times must change and new leadership is sometimes necessary for a company to reach the next phase.

After our press release issued earlier this week, I was amazed to receive so many wonderful letters and emails expressing good wishes for my future. Well, I’d like to let one and all know that such support is overwhelming, it certainly makes one feel very humble and I am very proud to have been part of the Agoracom HUB .

I have had success in the past and there is still many tomorrows to come with lots of drills waiting to discover the next big hole and I have many plans to keep exploring After today, I am going to take a much needed break. I think I will have a glass of wine, do some fishing and relax and come back with a vengeance, everybody get ready for round two. I’LL BE BACK

Thank you Scott and the Agoracom team and special thanks to all retail investors who have been so extremely supportive.

With more thanks than can be expressed

INVITATION: The Must See PDAC Event Of 2016 – World Premiere Of “Fire Starter” Extended Trailer

Posted by AGORACOM at 8:51 AM on Saturday, March 5th, 2016

LOGO - FireStarter - Small

The PDAC is the Super Bowl of the global mining industry.  It is the event that brings together everyone from explorers to miners, bankers and – the most important of all – investors, for the purposes of trying to discover the next great resource project.

Let me save you some time and tell you what investors in The Ring Of Fire already know … The Next Great Resource Find Is Already Here.

The Ring Of Fire is is home to an estimated $60 billion worth of mineral deposits … and it’s sitting in Northern Ontario just 1.200 Kilometers from Toronto.  Everyone agrees that the economic benefits to the industry, Ontario, Canada and The First Nations would span the next 100 years.

… And Yet … neither the two highest levels of government (Provincial + Federal), nor Bay Street have been able to coordinate the necessary framework, funding and First Nations agreements necessary to move the Ring Of Fire forward.

Why?  Are the hurdles simply insurmountable?  Or are the powers that be just waiting for the only two active companies in the Ring Of Fire – KWG Resources and Noront Resources to choke out and take it all for themselves?

We went to find out … and what you are going to discover will astound you.

Executive Producer Jamie Bailey traveled all over Ontario and interviewed people at the highest levels of Government, Industry, First Nations and Environmental Protection to discover the truth and expose it for everyone to see.  For YOU to see.  This is Fire Starter.

With the impending release of the documentary expected towards the end of April, Jamie Bailey along with Producers Maureen O’Mahoney and George Tsiolis invite you to watch the world premiere of the 10 minute extended trailer at PDAC, the details of which you will find below.

If you are an investor, mining executive, member of the First Nations, or a service provider to the mining industry and attending PDAC 2016, then this is the MUST SEE PDAC EVENT OF 2016. We hope to see you there and we kindly ask that you share this invite with your networks via e-mail and social media.


We are pleased to invite you to watch this preview at an Open House at KWG Resources offices during the PDAC as follows:

From 12 noon until 5 pm on Monday March 7th, Tuesday March 8th and Wednesday March 9th.

On Monday March 7th, Executive Producer Jamie Bailey will attend between 12 noon and 2 pm to introduce the initial showing and participate in a Q&A session with attendees.

KWG and Noront to Talk After Proposed Acquisition of Cliffs Chromite Announced

Posted by AGORACOM-JC at 3:22 PM on Monday, March 23rd, 2015

TORONTO, ONTARIO–(March 23, 2015) – KWG Resources Inc. (“KWG”) (CSE:KWG)(TSX VENTURE:KWG)(FRANKFURT:KW6)(OTCBB:KWGBF) is pleased to have been invited to talks with Noront Resources Ltd. (“Noront“) when informed this morning of the proposed purchase by Noront of the Ring of Fire assets of Cliffs Quebec Iron Mining ULC.

“This is positive news for us,” said KWG CEO Frank Smeenk. “Noront CEO Al Coutts has invited us to discuss our future plans to develop our properties in partnership with the First Nations. We are delighted with this evolution of the Ring of Fire’s opportunities and are hopeful that our relationship with our Big Daddy joint venture partner will become more constructive and collaborative. We think that the transportation and processing options we have developed can now be pursued in concert with our two governments and the First Nations constituencies to see the mineral assets of both Noront and KWG go into production.”

About KWG: KWG has a 30% interest in the Big Daddy chromite deposit and the right to earn 80% of the Black Horse chromite where resources are being defined. KWG also owns 100% of Canada Chrome Corporation which has staked claims and conducted a $15 million surveying and soil testing program, originally for the engineering and construction of a railroad to the Ring of Fire from Aroland, Ontario. KWG subsequently acquired patent interests, including a method for the direct reduction of chromite to metalized iron and chrome using natural gas. The company has determined that the reduction method can be employed to metalize finely ground chromite which may be recovered from slurry delivered to Aroland in an underground pipeline constructed within the Canada Chrome claims.
