MONTREAL – The communication fund of the Quebec mining industry, Minalliance, created www.MinesQC.com, an online dialog and information platform aimed at bringing together the general public and Quebec's mining industry.
The initiative is an industry first. The Quebec Mineral Exploration Association and the Quebec Mining Association support it as "a highly relevant tool that will allow the general public to dispel the myths and realities surrounding the industry and its contribution to a better quality of life."
Dean Journeaux, executive vice-chairman of New Millennium Iron, "MinesQC.com is a ground-breaking project. It's the first web platform for industry-wide dialogue and information that allows completely transparent interaction with the public. Stakeholders are invited to participate."
MinesQC.com is an open website for questions, answers, information, and conversations about the Quebec mining industry. All of those who are interested in or have questions about the mining process, from exploration to rehabilitation, or who have points of view on the social, environmental, and economic aspects of the Quebec mining industry, are invited to express themselves and consult the site's content. Questions and comments are forwarded to industry representatives, researchers, and independent experts who provide Quebeckers with documented and transparent answers.
