Strateco takes legal action against Quebec

Reading Time 1 minute read Subscribe


Strateco Resources, an uranium mining company, has filed a court order against the Quebec government after a provincial environmental group refused to give its consent to an exploration project. It wants the province to decide whether or not the company can explore for uranium in Quebec's Otish Mountains, on the James Bay Cree territory. In October, The Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission granted an exploration license to Strateco Resources. That license allows the company to do advanced exploration for uranium at the site. Quebec's Environmental and Social Impact Review Committee, COMEX, said it will only give its approval if there is written consent from the Cree community in the area. The community, which strongly opposes the project, is even calling for a ban on uranium mining across Quebec. Fasken Martineau, lawyers for Strateco, is expected to be back in court in February to argue the case. The team, led by Christian Trépanier, includes Audrey Gagnon. Click for more information
