The Quebec Mineral Exploration Association (QMEA) is a non-profit organization which represents those involved in Quebec’s mineral industry. The QMEA was created in 1975 to bolster mineral exploration in the province and support the development of Quebec's mining companies. Today, it includes 1200 individual members (prospectors, geologists, geophysicists, brokers, tax specialists and others) and 225 corporate members (junior and major exploration companies, engineering consultant firms specializing in geology and geophysics, drilling companies etc). 

The Québec Mineral Exploration Association's mission is to promote sustainable and responsible exploration of Quebec's mineral resources, and their vital contribution to the economy.

QMEA's vision is to become the standard of expertise and development for mineral exploration in Québec.

40 years ago, the Québec Prospectors Association was found to stimulate Québec exploration work. Many years later, the Association now named the Québec Mineral Exploration Association, still gather the stakeholders of our industry under similar and still current issues. To highlight the work and vision of the founders, we present this video that will remind many precious moments.
