to bother you, but I have been using your page with helpful
references on rocks and minerals as a guide for my science class
...It's a nice page; thanks for making it!
I thought I would send you an additional page you might want to
add. It's a great page for teaching kids about geology (igneous
rocks, sedimentary rocks, metamorphic rocks, minerals, etc...)
It's a gem:
My student's and I really liked the page - I hope you do too! -
Melissa West -Thank you so much and I am
glad that the page is helpful to you. I have added the new page
link as well. Editor
I just want to take a few minutes to tell you that I recently
discovered your website by accident about 2 weeks ago. I found
it very well-done. It's unfortunate that it's not more
advertized. I consult it everyday since to check the latest
mining news in Canada. I wish you success with your website.
Sincerely, Simon, student in geology Thanks

fine job you perform in maintaining such an adverse variety of

What a great asset you and the Canadian Mining News website are to
the industry and to clueless people like me. I enjoyed tooling
around on the site a bit. I am impressed by the quantity/quality
of information, news and links available on the site. I could see
that the site earned the plaudits sent in by those leaving
messages in the “Comments” area.

And since you linked to the Minegate, you often show up on the

Thanks. Jim. What a nice compliment!
Recently I attended the PDAC in
Toronto and I didn't have anyway of getting any of the mining
releases or news.
Upon returning home, I was able to
depend on your site to bring up to speed on what was what.
Bless you, and your informable site. Keep up your hard work, it
is certainly appreciated!
Editor: Thanks Heather. Glad to know I'm
appreciated for sure.

of Canadian shares and they have performed nicely this past year.

Thanks Shirley for what you have done -
Editor: No thank you for your wonderful
poems. What a talented man.
Good Afternoon Shirley
I have enjoyed your subscription service for some time now. I
recently changed to a cable internet service and find it much much
faster. I fact my daughter says things that used to take half an
hour to download, if you didn't get booted off in the meantime,
now take less than a minute. You have a well balanced program. I
am particularly interested in the Kirkland Lake-Matheson area as I
own several claims or have deals with a number of
mining companies in the area. Of particular interest are St.
Andrew Goldfields (SAS), Queenston (QMI), Kirkland Lake Gold (KLI)
a newly listed company Vault Minerals (VMI) and any of the other
companies operating or exploring in the area.
Keep up the good work
Dave DeLoye Editor: Very nice to hear,

In my opinion the Canadian Mining News Web Site is one of the
Best web sites I have come across with a wealth of information
relating to Canadian Mining and there are a great many links to
other sites with information regarding a variety of other
CMN site will remain one of my Top 10 sites Thanks for the work
and effort put into this site.
Editor: Wow! Thank you John for your kind words.
Just stumbled on to your web site and it is GREAT! Tremendous
variety of articles

Congratulations and keep up the good work!!!

We are a mining company in Nigeria dealing in
Tantalite and the publications in your on-line newspaper titled "Little known Tantalum rare, but its future shines" by

Also useful to us is your 'Mineral and Metal' update section.

Editor: Done, Mr. Lynes
Quite a bit of info on one page here. Nicely put together Big Hits site. I have one I'm working on with the same hosting company.
The colors conflict a little though and some of this could be spread to another page, just to give it a little more appeal.
Editor: Not a Big Hits Site but your comments are
Pros: All the information you would ever need to know about mining. Detailed, updated daily, full contact information, resources, and
very focused. Editor: Thank you very
Cons: Home page is just too long - to a novice the information would appear overwhelming. In the left column the blue links on the red
background are very hard to read. Site index should be at or near the top of the page.
Editor: Thank you for your comments.
Unfortunately I couldn't get your site to load. I don't know what happened. Good Luck to you.
Editor: Maybe one of our servers was down , please try again
Interesting site packed with information. As a person who has never looked at this subject, I found all of the information confusing,
but someone closer to the subject would probably enjoy this site. I
would recommend dividing up the information to create multiple pages
and a shorter home page. Pages could consist of new news, links, today's article, etc. Also, you may wish to consider changing the
red background in the left column to a more muted color. It is very
hard to read text on a red background.
Editor: Thank you for your suggestions.
I liked it. I personally don't like a site that's one continuous page but that's just me. Lots of info, content and news.
Editor: Thanks for your comments.
I liked this site a lot. Soon as the page came up on my browser the color was very eye catching. The site was very easy to read and
navigate. I liked all the information that was presented but thought
maybe it might be too much or cluttered as a first page. I really
liked the links available to the Stock Exchanges so you could check out you mining stocks and the Hot News articles. The use of graphics
was very effective. The only down side to the site was that the free
mousepad link wasn't working. Editor:
Thank you and I fixed that link
I liked this site. It was up to date, course it is a news site.
I wish I had the drive to do this myself, just to keep up would be nice. Wonderful job, I like the style... keep up the good work.
Editor: It is very time consuming but I
enjoy it immensely. Thank you.
Hi there Ozzie,
Firstly, let me
compliment you on your site http://www.canadianminingnews.com.
It is both creative and informative. Thank you for placing our banner
on your home page.
Kind Regards, Lesley Lawrence
Editor: You are very kind and you're welcome.
By the way... interesting site.
Truthfully, I was surprised to find I was interested in mining,
lol! Must be the location - as I'm in the Sault.. not far
away at all, really. I've bookmarked the site - I'd like to
see how the "Ontario Stake Rush" turns out...
Editor: Thanks, Les. Good luck to you too.
I have just started to read your web page and have noticed that the
largest percentage of news is of mining companies and news of Ontario. I would
like to see a larger base covered in order to cover Canada from ocean to ocean.
Canada needs to unite on all fronts to show unity in Canada. We need this
every where even in the mining news!
