During the period when Parti Québécois controlled Québec, the province's attractiveness as a mining jurisdiction fell from #1 to #21 in the Frasier Institute's Annual Survey of Mining Companies. But when Philippe Couillard's Liberal government won a majority in April 2014, the market got the message. Eric Lemieux, consulting technical adviser to Toronto-based Peartree Securities, says that the Osisko Mining bidding war showed that companies were willing to pay a premium for Québec-based assets. Since then other takeovers have happened. In this interview with The Gold Report, Lemieux discusses some promising projects in Québec and other stable jurisdictions.
