Rich in gold and land, offering the people, the infrastructure and the setting, the Township of Black River-Matheson is open for your business.
Mining gold, support
Black River - Matheson connects three of Ontario's most productive gold mining areas. Five of its mines yield gold, and exploration for other minerals is underway. Power from high-voltage transmission lines running across the Township and central locations suited to businesses serving the mining industry offer support.
Location, transportationBlack River - Matheson lies between Northern Ontario's larger centres. Here, the Trans-Canada Highway intersects Highway 101, which links Québec with Timmins. Ontario Northland offers freight and passenger rail service. Three airports are within an hour's drive.
In addition to a skilled, trades-trained workforce, the Township offers reasonable tax rates, a well-staffed and equipped hospital, extremely low housing costs, and a setting that has been justly described as an outdoor lover's paradise.
Black River - Matheson is home to tens of thousands of acres in the great clay belt-fertile land, much of it pesticide and herbicide free, that is well served by rural roads and the long growing days of our summers.
