Quebec warns Strateco Matoush project to be turned down

Quebec's Sustainable Development and Environment minister has given Strateco Resources notice that a refusal to develop the Matoush project near Mistissini is on the way.  Yves- Francois Blanchet says the company has 60 days to get social acceptance of the project from the Crees of James Bay. Strateco is looking for advanced exploration approval for a proposed Uranium Mine in the Otish Mountains near Mistissini. Joshua Loon spoke with the Chief of Mistissini, Richard Shecapio and with the president and CEO of Strateco Resources, Guy Hebert. Hebert says the Crees started to turn against the project in 2010.
