FUNDING: Quebec government supports COREM

QUEBEC CITY – The government of Quebec has pledged $2.8 million over three years to COREM, the large Canadian organization devoted to mineral processing R&D. The grant was announced by Luc Blanchette, Quebec minister of mines and the MNA for l’Abitibi-Temiscamingue and northern Quebec.

“This financial support from your ministry is crucial to COREM and will allow us to pursue our work and share our expertise and resources. … By renewing your financial support for a period of three years, you will allow our organization to maintain its momentum and to continue to innovate and support the mining industry in its major development projects,” said COREM executive director Claire Lavallée.

COREM members, Canada’s mineral producers, provide 80% of its funding. The remainder comes from the provincial and federal governments.
