Mining industry watchdog - Keeping a close eye on developments near the Labrador - Quebec border
The area of Labrador near the Quebec town of Schefferville is a busy place this summer. Besides the re-development of mines that were closed decades ago, there is a lot of exploration happening in that area. Much of the work is on land that is part of aboriginal land claims and agreements have been reached with many of the native groups. Recently, a mining watch dog group says it has concerns about the way things are going with some projects in the area. Ramsey Hart, is with Mining Watch Canada. Labrador Morning’s Mike Power reached him at his Ottawa office to find out more about his concerns, and how he thinks they should be resolved.
