Event Detail

you're interested in Québec's mineral resources and their development, take note! This year, the mining sector’s annual rendez-vous will take place on November 11 to 14, 2013, at the Québec City Conference Centre. 

Presented by the Ministère des Ressources naturelles with the valuable collaboration of the Canadian Institute of Mining, Metallurgy and Petroleum, the Québec Mining Association, the Comité sectoriel de main-d'œuvre de l'industrie des mines, the Institut national des mines and Québec international, Québec Mines will highlight different aspects of mining development for everyone with a direct or indirect interest in the sector. Actors from Québec's mining industry will come together with the sector's scientists to learn, discuss and do business. The general public is also invited, to discover and discuss, and students from elementary and secondary schools will also be introduced to the wonderful world of mineral resources. The international community will be there to share.  And for everyone who attends, Québec Mines is truly a marketplace for the geosciences and mineral resources!
