Please join Québec Mines + Énergie as they welcome Payne Institute Senior Research Associate Dr. Sara Hastings-Simon on a webinar titled Critical and Strategic Minerals Strategies in the United States and Europe – What Place for Quebec? on Monday, November 16, 2020 from 9:15am – 11:30am (MT).
On May 18, 2018, the United States Department of the Interior published a list of 35 minerals considered critical and strategic to the American economy due to deficiencies in domestic production and foreign dependence. For the same reasons, the European Union did the same and published on September 3, 2020 an updated list (the third since 2011) of 30 minerals critical and strategic for the economies of its members. Faced with this situation, Quebec has realized the significant potential of its territory for these different substances. Besides identifying capital resources for the American and European economies, what strategies will the United States and the European Union put in place to increase their resilience and to diversify and secure their supplies of these raw materials? Faced with these strategies, what should Quebec’s position be with regard to the production, processing and recycling of critical and strategic minerals? It is in the company of Mr. Bernd Schäfer, Ms. Sara Hasting-Simon and Ms. Nathalie Camden that we will attempt to answer these questions.
Please note that these conferences will be offered in French, English and in the original format.
