Québec Exploration 2009:
A Sustainable Development Open House!

"Sustainable development," "responsible mining exploration", "outstanding geological sites," and "mineral strategy" are all terms that will be in the air at the Open House activities organized for conference attendees as well as for the general public and students.

On Thursday, November 26 as of 12:30 p.m. Québec Exploration will open its doors to members of the public—including primary and secondary students—who are interested in the Québec mining sector. Over a hundred students, together with their teachers, have already signed up.

The educational activities intended for students will center on the theme "The oldest rock in the world is in Québec." Guided tours, spectacular mineral collections, presentations by dedicated professionals in the sector, and a host of other activities are planned.

A special session has been organized for those interested in sustainable development and the environment, starting at 1:30 p.m. in the Frontenac Room.

Starting Thursday, November 26 at 12:30 p.m. you will have a golden opportunity to attend, free of charge, a one-of-a-kind event in the wonderful world of mining and geology!
