The Chapais-Chibougamau branch of the Canadian Institute of Mining, Metallurgy and Petroleum (CIM) is collaborating with the Nord-du-Québec office of the Ministère des Ressources Naturelles et de la Faune (MRNF), the Bureau d’Exploration Géologique du Québec, also with the MRNF, the company Développement Chibougamau, and the Cree Nation of Mistissini to organize an important mining symposium on May 30-31 and June 1, 2011 to be held in Chibougamau (May 30-31) and Mistissini (June 1). The goal of this symposium is to increase awareness and understanding about the Baie-James region and its main stakeholders, and to help develop its extraordinary mineral potential.


During this gathering, participants will present new data and the most up-to-date interpretations for the geological settings of five areas of interest in the Baie-James area. These areas are favourable for base metals (copper, zinc), precious metals (gold, silver) and rare metals (lithium and rare earths), in addition to iron, uranium and diamonds.

The program will consist of three conference sessions:
