Quebec Gold Mines - Exclusive Gold Investing News Article by Dave Brown
Many geologists and mining experts consider the Canadian province of Québec to be an exceptional region from the standpoint of the potential wealth of its tremendous area of yet unexplored land. In excess of 90 percent of the province’s substratum is made up of Precambrian rock, a geological formation well known for its deposits of gold, iron, copper and nickel. Quebec hosts approximately 30 mines, 158 exploration projects and 15 primary processing industries, spanning a broad range of over 30 minerals of which the leading ones are gold, iron, titanium, asbestos, copper, zinc and silver. Since the Québec mining industry took off in the 1920′s, it has maintained steady growth and scarcely 40 percent of Québec’s mineral potential is now known. Regional mining booms were first experienced in the Abitibi-Témiscamingue area, with exploration subsequently carried out in the Matagami, Chibougamau, Saguenay Lac-Saint-Jean, Grand-Nord and Côte-Nord regions.
