    This page will provide a link to an ecclectic mix of information about the watershed. New items will be added here from time to time.

    1. Geology and Mining Report
        The report entitled "Geology, Mineral Deposits and History of Mining in the Tay River Watershed" is now available on-line. This report, written by geologist Donald Sherwin, for the Friends of the Tay Watershed Association contains a wealth of geological and mining information for our watershed. It includes references to the occurrence of uranium in our watershed, as well as a detailed mineral occurrences map. The Print version is also available from the Friends of the Tay Watershed.
        Click here for the report.

    2. Check out your mineral rights
        Because there is considerable confusion about which properties have retained the mineral rights with surface rights, in Ontario, we have posted an explanation of how to determine this on the Internet ~ click here for further information.

    4. Paddling the Tay
        The Tay River is a hidden jewel. It gives one the impression that it is miles from civilization and yet it is literally at our back door. It is a marvelous river to paddle. Printed copies of this brochure are available through the Friend of the Tay Watershed. Many thanks to the team that put this one together.
