Canada is among the top countries in the world to have its name on the mineral exploration list. Its gold mine districts can be found across Ontario, British Columbia and Quebéc. And even with all those gold district regions already discovered, there is still potential to find gold in the country. But where will Canada's next gold district be? Well, it's most likely to be the Trans-Hudson Corridor, which is spread from Dakota, United States to James Bay, Canada.
The Trans-Hudson Corridor area is one of those regions that have not been previously explored much. The reason why this region is being framed as Canada's next potential gold district is due to the fact that before closing back in 2001, gold and silver were unravelled in millions of ounces in the Homestake Mine. Although the northern portion of the Trans-Hudson Corridor has a few gold mines in operation, yet there are more areas, such as that around the Snow Lake, where gold mineralization is deemed possible.

However, at the moment, Canada has three major gold districts, namely the Golden Triangle, the Red Lake Gold District, and the Abitibi Greenstone Gold Belt. Of these three, the latter has produced the most ounces of gold, an astonishing 180 million. The Red Lake Gold District follows, producing almost 30 ounces of gold, with the first gold discoveries being made back in 1897. Finally, the British Columbia's Golden Triangle is at the very end, yet with an impressive production record of 5.26 million ounces of gold.
Companies like SKRR Exploration and Taiga Gold are looking forward to increasing this gold production by uncovering possibilities in the Trans-Hudson Corridor. Have a look at the infographic below to view a brief history of Canada's gold districts as well as what's in store for the future.
