Québec Mines Congress: A New Formula for a Changing World

Editorial by the new Associate Deputy Minister for Mines, Robert Marquis

This is an invitation to come and meet the main players in the world of mineral development—from government departments and agencies ensuring compliance with laws and regulations and a fair revenue stream, to explorers looking for new deposits, infrastructure developers, mine operators, service providers and specialized research centres! Next November, they will all gather at the Québec City convention centre for Québec Mines, the new congress organized by the Ministère des Ressources naturelles et de la Faune.

If you are interested in the North, Québec Mines will provide an opportunity to meet some of the people who live there and find out more about their dreams, hopes and achievements. Come and see for yourself, and discuss job prospects with the people who devote their time, day after day, to building the mines of the present and the future.

A mining convention that includes the Québec population, in keeping with the focus on sustainable, responsible development

Québec Mines will open its doors to all citizens of Québec as it presents the main changes affecting the mining sector. Current topics in the mining industry such as site rehabilitation, new taxation issues and jobs will be a key focus, and information will be provided on the situation of the mining industry and its effects on Québec society. The open-door day will also give over 500 elementary and secondary school students an opportunity to discover the world of mining through specially-designed educational activities.
