About us

Ring of Fire Metals holds the most important mineral deposits in the Ring of Fire region, located in the James Bay Lowlands of Northern Ontario. We are committed to responsibly developing critical minerals, such as nickel, copper, cobalt, chrome, platinum and palladium that are needed to support the transition to a low-carbon future.

Our Eagle’s Nest project is a high-grade nickel, copper and platinum group element (PGE) deposit. This deposit has the potential to be a catalyst for developing additional downstream processing capability in Ontario and establishing the Province as a globally-significant producer of battery materials.

In April 2022, Wyloo Metals, an Australian-based company, completed its acquisition of Ring of Fire Metals, formerly Noront Resources. Wyloo Metals explores for, develops and invests in the next generation of mines that will produce the raw materials needed for a clean and sustainable future.
