New Mining Laws

Christina Moreau
North Bay, Canada

Jan 21, 2014 — New mining laws for the province of Quebec were adapted in December 2013. We have received conflicting information as to if the proposed Matamec project will now have to undergo an environmental impact assessment at the provincial level (BAPE). Along with the changes the Minister's right to refuse a project was waived. This change puts more decision power in the hands of the local municipalities. More details will follow once available.
