A crew collects soil borings from along a possible route of a proposed 210-mile railroad. The samples will help engineers determine the feasibility of the route. Cliffs Natural Resources and KWG Resources are considering developing chromite deposits in a vast roadless area of Northern Ontario. That would require building a railroad across the James Bay Lowlands, an area of spruce forests and muskeg. Krech Ojard and Associates of Duluth was hired last year to provide engineering services for the construction of the rail line.
