As important as the Board Manual is as a guide in setting high standards for Northern Superior staff, the Company does recognize the importance of encouraging its staff to maintain and expand its knowledge and expertise in exploration and management. This is done through staff participation in relevant conferences, courses and involvement in professional organizations. For example, the President and Vice President of Operations are both registered professional geoscientists and the Company’s President is the Past-President of the Sudbury Prospectors and Developers Association of Canada, sits on the Ontario Prospectors Association board of directors and also the Ontario Mines Minister’s Mining Act Advisory Committee.
In addition, the Company has made a point of engaging and involving all First Nation communities within whose traditional territories the company is exploring. The Company has a proud record of training and employing First Nation community members in a variety of aspects of its exploration programs through Early Economic Exploration Benefits Agreements, Letters of Agreement and Memorandums of Understanding.
