Timmins-James Bay MP Charlie Angus is looking for some support from the federal government for the mining industry.
Angus spoke about the upcoming federal budget in the House of Commons yesterday, saying there needs to be a clear commitment to the industry.
Angus says the mineral exploration tax credit is a big part of that.
Angus says the closure of the century old Dome Mine in Timmins is a sign of the importance of supporting the search for new ore deposits.
