American Resources expert Gareth Hatch has an excellent piece up on his site (techmetalsresearch.com) that outlines Quebec’s “Plan Nord” – the Canadian province’s plan to develop its northern reaches in both strategic and sustainable ways.
“Plan Nord could have a significantly positive effect on the development of rare-earth and other rare-metal projects in Quebec, and indirectly in Labrador as well, since Labrador shares a border with Quebec to the latter province’s east. It’s an interesting example of a jurisdiction putting together an integrated, coordinated effort to develop its resources, one that could have far-reaching consequences for Canada, North America and the rest of the developed world.”
What about us, “South” of Nord? Are we doing what we can to maximize our resource potential? Let us know your thoughts in the comments section below.
