April 17, 2018

Université du Québec en Abitibi-Témiscamingue has formed a first-of-its-kind partnership with la Fonderie Horne that will support a tailings park renaturalization project. Valued at $500K over five years, the project will focus on the environmental rehabilitation of Horne’s Quémont 2 site located in Rouyn-Noranda, Quebec. A UQAT release notes that the project will allow the school to pool the resources and expertise of its Institut de recherche en mines et en environnement (IRME) and the Institut de recherche sur les forêts (IRF). UQAT Rector Denis Martel noted that the partnership will fulfill the dual goals of establishing research groupings on interdisciplinary themes and developing partnerships with the community. UQAT
