2005 Symposium on Mines and the Environment
From May 15 to 18, 2005, the 2005 Symposium
on mines and the environment was held in Rouyn-Noranda. The event
drew more than 200 participants from across Canada and abroad.
The objectives of this kind of symposium are to share the most recent
information in terms of mining and the environment and to discuss
practical experiences, in order to find solutions that reconcile
profitability of mining operations and environmental protection.
The Department is therefore proud to have been involved at the organizational
level and in presenting technical sessions. The proceedings of the
2005 Symposium will be available soon.
