GREENER MINES

Privileged by nature, Québec benefits from particularly rich soils and subsoils. Like all the people here, you are probably worried about protecting the environment and the risks of fragility through mining. In order to better direct our activities, we try to establish their potential effects on the natural environment right from the exploration stage.

Exploiting our hidden treasures without taking into account the green areas that contain them would be unacceptable. The mineral industry is working hard to mitigate the impact of its activities on the environment and to ensure the sound management of our mineral resources.

Over time, new exploration and exploitation techniques have been developed in accordance with Québec’s environmental standards. Managed responsibly, the mineral industry is part of an exceptional economic sector.
