QMX Gold Corporation is a Canadian-based mineral exploration and development mining company. The Company’s operations and strategic investments are located in the Abitibi District of Quebec and the Snow Lake District of Manitoba.
The success of an exploration operation depends on three critical factors:
- the prospectivity of the property location
- the amount of drilling that will take place
- the people managing and interpreting the data.
QMX has all these necessary ingredients to find large deposits of both gold and base metals in one of the most favourable jurisdictions for developing mines in the world. The province of Quebec is rated the #1 location in the world for mining by the Fraser Institute.
The Abitibi District of Quebec is one of the two gold “hot spots” in North America (the other being Nevada-Western Utah), and historically the 3rd richest gold producing region in the world. This region has been the birth place of many current and past major Canadian mining and exploration companies. The majority of the world’s recent discoveries have been made in these regions.
The Snow Lake region, a significant historical producing area, features the McLeod Road Thrust Fault and has been home to many mining companies since 1949 when the first Nor-Acme Gold Mine was opened.
