Québec Exploration 2010

The 8th edition of Québec Exploration will explore the theme “Creating Collective Wealth.” This conference, which has grown increasingly popular year after year, is a must-attend event for people far and wide who are interested in mineral exploration. In 2009, despite the more somber economic outlook, Québec Exploration drew a record number of attendees. It therefore stands to reason that the conference will break new attendance records in late November 2010.

Honorary Chair: Sean Roosen

The organizing committee is proud to confirm the appointment of Sean Roosen, President and CEO of the Osisko Mining Corporation, as honorary chair of Québec Exploration 2010. With over 20 years of experience in mining and major development projects, Mr. Roosen has built an international reputation.

A top notch program

The organizing committee is already announcing its program of highly diversified lectures that will satisfy everyone’s expectations. Lecture topics include:

A number of outstanding and reputed speakers from around the world have already signed on.

More exhibitors

Due to its increasing popularity, the trade fair component of Québec Exploration will be bigger and better this year with new exhibition rooms and a new booth layout to accommodate more geoscientific and commercial exhibitors.

Workshops and interactive sessions

Update your knowledge of mineral exploration through the extensive program of workshops and interactive sessions featuring topics such as state-of-the-art metal exploration techniques, new mineral exploration tools, media relations, and the ins and outs of mining on aboriginal land.

As in years past, this will be a one-of-a-kind opportunity for mineral exploration stakeholders to find out the latest results of the mapping studies conducted by Bureau de l’exploration géologique du Québec, Centre géoscientifique du Québec, and universities.

The fourth Open House Day, which will begin at noon on Thursday, has a host of surprises in store for participants. Exploring the theme of earthquakes, this year’s open house is sure to stand out from previous editions. Hundreds of primary and secondary school students will be in attendance. This meeting with mining industry specialists could change their lives. It’s your chance to convince them to choose a career in mineral exploration!

The program will also include a multitude of social activities and events you won’t want to miss!
