Mineral Activities

The mineral potential of the whole the Area of Interest for the Broadback River Conservation Area should be studied and evaluated.

The areas already proposed for protection and for future protected areas expansion should be made off limits to mining claims immediately, until decisions have been taken with regard the boundaries of protection. The request for the suspension of new mineral staking for the Mishigamish and Chisesaakahiikan areas was been made to the Quebec Government by the Chiefs of both Nemaska and Waswanipi in 2010. Actions must be taken to implement these measures.

Mining activities in the Special Management Zones would need to be evaluated before permits are issued, to in order to ensure that they are in line with the conservation and development objectives set out for each zone.
