As the infographic states, it’s significant to mention that every single major gold producing country has an iconic gold producing trend, with Canada having many well-known gold producing regions over the years.

With the gold capital of Canada currently resting in Red Lake, Ontario, it is here that some of the world’s richest gold deposits can be found.

While most of the gold production in the district has come from structurally controlled vein-type gold deposits, Red Lake has the distinction of being one of the “newer” areas for exploration.

 And even though it has faced its fair share of problems, Red Lake will still be one of the most exciting addresses for gold in Canada for many years to come.

Currently, Gold Canyon has two projects in the works happening near Red Lake, including the Springpole Project.

Don’t miss the other exciting changes that have taken place at this location throughout the years, as well as how the district was able to overcome obstacles and maintain its success.

Let us know what your thoughts are on the Red Lake location, and if you have any other favorite spots throughout Canada for producing gold.
