Public information sessions on the Strange Lake Rare Earth Project, a forward-looking clean energy project for Sept-Îles and the Côte-Nord

The Torngat Metals team invites the people of Sept-Îles to attend its first round of public information exchanges to discuss its proposal to build a rare earth separation plant in Sept-Îles.

Rare earth are critical minerals for the development of clean energy technologies.  In particular, rare earth are used in the manufacture of permanent magnets essential to electric vehicle motors, generators and wind turbines. The use of rare earth is essential to the transition from an economy dominated by fossil fuels to one based on mineral energy, a transition already underway in Quebec, North America, and the rest of the world. 

The rare earth plant will position Sept-Îles and the Côte-Nord region as a leader in the clean energy transition by becoming the global hub for the production of rare earth, enabling Quebec to ensure a stable and responsible global supply chain.

“Engaging and collaborating with local communities is essential to achieving our mission: to build a sustainable and responsible project with multiple environmental, social and economic benefits for generations to come. That’s why, right from the project’s development phase and for the phases to come, Torngat Metals is committed to meeting with the citizens of Sept-Îles to initiate and pursue a truly transparent and inclusive dialogue,” Éric Luneau, Vice President Community Engagement and Partnerships.

The Torngat Metals team looks forward to seeing you on April 11 and 15 at the Sept-Îles Convention Centre, 513 Av. Brochu, Sept-Îles (Québec) G4R 2X3, to present our project and, above all, to gather your comments, expectations and concerns, while answering your questions. 

These information sessions will also be recorded and posted on our website, for those unable to attend.

At any time, you are invited to contact Éric Luneau, Vice-President Community Engagement and Partnerships, at the following address :
