SUSTAINABILITY

“The motivation of our exploration and development activities is ultimately the exploitation and transformation of a mineral resource. Starting from there, we are determined to use these activities to actively participate in the sustainable socio-economic development of the EeyouIstchee James Bay territory.

We recognize the non-renewable aspect of a mineral resource as well as the extent of human needs, present and future, to be satisfied by the various usages of this resource.

We also recognize that mining has an environmental impact, and despite the constant improvement of technologies and mining methods, such activity cannot be done without minimum risk.

In this context, we believe in mining development which takes into account sustainable development in terms of its social and economic benefits, through increased environmental and ethical responsibility and continuous improvement of practices.

For GéoMégA, sustainable development is a continuous commitment.”
