From May 26th to June 4th, the chairs members had the chance to participate in a summer school organized jointly by the MinErAL and the REXSAC research networks. Our group, composed of researchers and PhD students from Canada and Scandinavia had the opportunity to discuss with various mining and community development stakeholders in the vicinity of Schefferville, Fermont and Labrador City. We visited the Innu community of Matimekush Lac John, the Naskapi community of Kawawachikamach and the administration of Schefferville and Fermont. In addition, we discussed with the mining companies of TATA Steel, Arcelor Mittal, Minerai de Fer Québec (Champion) and Iron Ore Company (IOC).
Thank you for the warm welcome of our partners and the participation of members of the MinErAL and REXSAC networks!
