Le Centre de recherches minerales— Outil de developpement pour I'industrie minerale du Quebec

Abstract Le Centre de Recherches minerales (CRM), qui est un organisme de recherche appliquee du ministere de I'Energie et des Ressources du Quebec, a ete cree en 1969, dans le but de procurer un support scientifique et technique a I'industrie dans le domaine des mines et de la metallurgie. Pour atteindre ses objectifs, le CRM met a la disposition de I'industrie un personnel specialise et competent dont une quarantaine d'ingenieurs et de scientifiques. Etant donne la nature meme de I'industrie minerale, ce personnel est tres verse dans I'etude des problemes diversifies des domaines de la technologic miniere, du traite-ment des minerals, de la metallurgie extractive et de I'analyse minerale. Ce Centre de recherches met egalement a la disposition de I'industrie une usine-pilote permettant de reproduire les resultats du laboratoire au moyen d'un appareillage de type industriel, d'obtenir des echantillons en quantite suffisante pour une exploration du marche et de familiariser du personnel avec les operations normales de I'industrie. Certaines de ses contributions recentes au developpement de I'industrie minerale du Quebec seront presentees.

Summary: 1984 was an eventful year in the courthouse for observers of the mining tax scene in Canada. For the first time in a number of years, the Federal Court heard several important tax cases which pertain directly to the resource industries. Tax Notes discusses four cases that could affect the taxation of operations and investment in the mining sector.

Summary: The maintenance records for AL-60 airlegs at Falconbridge Ltd. are used to demonstrate some of the procedures for the analysis of such data. The data are not representative of pure failures of one type or another. In fact, the records are for the undefined pseudo-failures which are usually found in industrial operations. However, because the machines are brought to the shop only when inoperative, the individual recorded components are treated as failures.
Manual calculations are conducted to...

Summary: Uranium is a unique commodity. It is both a metal and a fuel. It has both commercial and military uses. It yields "clean energy" but presents environmental concerns. All of these factors have an impact on the commerce of uranium.
Being a metal, uranium is extracted from ore like many other metallic minerals. As a fuel, it is subject to the vagaries of energy commodity market forces. The history of uranium in the first nuclear weapons has led to national governments carefully...

Summary: Rocks of the Grenville Province in southeastern Ontario are currently largely dismissed by many geologists as having little or no potential for discovery of significant deposits of metallic minerals. The present study demonstrates that the area contains numerous deposit types which elsewhere are major metal producers. Therefore, there is significant unrealized potential, especially for gold, zinc, uranium, and possibly copper.
The variety of deposits of metallic mineralization include...
