BAFFIN  ISLAND
Baffin Island Greenland        Ontario        
     Perhaps the greatest concentration of corundum localities in Canada is in Ontario Province, but others may be found throughout the country.  Interesting ruby specimens have been found on Greenland, and more recently gem blue sapphires from Baffin Island began to appear on the market.  We devote separate pages to these regions, and look at some others below.

SLOCAN  VALLEY

     This locality in Alberta(?) Province, known as the Blu Starr Mine, has recently been explored for industrial grade corundum and zircon.  I have some specimens gathered by one of the mining engineers on the project.
