Québec Exploration 2009
Towards Sustainable Mining Exploration

The theme of the 7th edition of Québec Exploration will be “Towards Sustainable Mining Exploration.” The convention, which grows increasingly popular with each passing year, will once again be a must-attend event for all mining exploration stakeholders and investors. It will also provide an opportunity for representatives of the geoscientific communities of Québec and the other provinces to meet and share the latest developments in the geosciences.

The organizing committee is proud to announce that distinguished geologist François Robert has agreed to act as honorary chair of Québec Exploration 2009. Mr. Robert, who holds a PhD from École Polytechnique de Montréal and a post doctorate from the University of Michigan, is currently head exploration geologist for Barrick Gold Corporation.

The organizing committee has already lined up a program of lectures that are sure to be of great interest to convention-goers. Some of the topics that will be discussed include…

A number of internationally renowned speakers have confirmed they will attend.

The event will also welcome a number of new exhibitors. Given its success last year, a core library will once again be set up for mining companies to display their drilling results.

As in past years, mining exploration stakeholders will enjoy the unique opportunity to get a sneak preview of the results of mapping and studies carried out by Bureau de l’exploration géologique du Québec, the Québec Geoscience Centre, and universities.

In addition, the Open House event starting at noon on Thursday will feature a number of surprises for those in attendance. The event will be open to the general public and will be better than ever before. Don’t miss it!

Be sure to set aside time from November 23 to 26, 2009, for this exciting event at the magnificent Château Frontenac in Québec. Register before October 15, 2009, and you’ll enjoy a discounted registration rate. For more information, visit the Québec Exploration website.
