Strateco Resources Inc. is proposing to construct an underground exploration ramp in order to operate a uranium mine located 260 km northeast of Chibougamau. The primary infrastructure consists of a 2405 m ramp at a maximum depth of 300 m. Temporary surface structures will be constructed to support the underground exploration work. This exploration project was launched to identify mineral resources with more precision and to determine the feasibility of a uranium mine.
