The time is now for Québec. Having spent many months throughout 2023 battling against the biggest wildfire in the province’s history, Québec braces to supply the world’s needs for future-facing commodities, while remaining a global hub for gold production. A top contender for investment attractiveness, the province saw an upscale in mining activity in the past months – that shows no signs of waning – to feed markets hungry for its precious, battery, and base metals.
Amid ambitious societal decarbonization goals and board-driven production targets, the industry in Québec can rely on its unique institutional, financial, and legal environment. Most importantly, La Belle Province’s network of service providers has made a name for itself globally, and the world’s appetite for minerals suggests that the know-how of Québecois engineers, geologists, drillers, air carriers, and AI-driven innovators, will have an ever-so-important role in making the green transition a success.
Amid the wildfires, GBR’s research team traveled throughout the province interviewing close to 80 industry leaders to present the most comprehensive analysis for stakeholders involved in the global mining value chain. From the government and its institutions to financial stakeholders, mining giants, ambitious explorers, and innovation-driven service providers, all forces are driving Québec’s mining industry forward.
