Québec is the second largest Canadian province, located in Eastern Canada. The province is predominantly French speaking and is the only province where the official language is French. Second largest province by population 7,870,026[2] the majority of the population is located to the south. Montréal is the largest city with a population of 3,859,318 [1] and Québec City second at 754,358 [1].

The village of Nemaska is located N 51.7167, W -76.3333 on Lac Champion near the James Bay Region of Quebec. A small Cree community of about 560 people the village name is Cree for `Where the fish abound`[5]. Nemaska was founded in 1980 when the original village to the south `Nemiscau` was abandoned in the 1970`s when Hydro Québec’s proposed the James Bay Hydro-Electric Project. Nemaska can be accessed year round via the Route du Nord or the James bay Highway. The village can also be accessed by plane Monday-Friday by Montréal, Val d'or or Chibogamau.[6]


The Québec Government offers many incentives for Established and Exploration Mining Companies as well as tax relief for investors for those operating in the province. On May 9th 2011 Premiere Jean Charest unveiled an 80 Billion Dollar plan known as the `The Plan Nord` over the next 25 years for the development of energy, mining, infrastructure, tourism and conservation [7]. The Government has also extended the generous mining incentives which were originally introduced in the early 2000`s [8] [9] which will carry through the fiscal year ending 31 March 2011. The extension has been granted by both the federal and provincial Governments. For Each $1000 a Junior mining company invests the expected net cost is $509, a deduction of $491.[10][11]

Department of Natural Resources and Wildlife Québec:

Ministère des Ressources naturelles et de la Faune or MRN[15] is the provincial department for Québec`s Natural resources.

MRN also provides a wealth of knowledge on forestry, energy, wildlife, territory and land surveys as well as information for investors. Companies that are subject to policies in the province of Québec must also follow the regulations set out by the Federal Government of Canada under the natural resources[16][17] and environmental departments[18][19]. The website is available in English, French and Spanish.

E-Sigéom à la carte:

E-Sigéom is a search engine into the Québec mining database[20]. Unfortunately links to search results cannot be posted by hyperlink, the user must enter the search criteria each time they wish to view information. The database can provide information on locations in various ways. By searching mining titles the user can view all active, revoked, expired titles, furthermore information is provided on location, size and expiry date. Under the examine document search engine the user can search by numerous search strings. Information on NI 43-101`s, authors, surveys and element searches are just a few ways a user can access the database.

James Bay Region Québec. Tucana Exploration Claims and Surrounding Claims.

The Abigail Property:

The Abigail Property Mining claims are 100% owned by Tucana Exploration Inc[28]. The property is comprised of 222 map designated cells which cover an area of 11,844 ha or 118.5 km2. The Route Du Nord traverses through the Southern Part of the property and the area is accessible year round[6]. Little past exploration has been performed on this property other than in 1975 and 1998[29]. In 2011 MRN released an Aerial Magnetic survey of NTS 32o12 and 32o13 which resulted in a savings of $150,000 for Tucana. Based on previous estimates there are three main types of deposits that may occur in this area, lithium, nickel sulphides and Uranium[29]. The recent aerial survey revealed a Keating Coefficient on the property which is indicative of magnetic anomalies that resemble the qualities of Kimberlite Pipes. This anomaly is located in the North Western area of the Abigail Property. On June 13th 2011[31] Tucana Lithium Corp entered into a geological and management services agreement with Nemaska. This exploration campaign will be lead by Geologist Yves Caron. Mr. Caron is a member[32] of the Association of Professional Geologists of Québec[33]. On the 26th of September 2011 Tucana announced[34] they have retained the services of Donald Thèberge a professional engineer to fulfill a NI 43-101 on the field operations and review the next phase of the exploration program for Tucana. Thèberge has 79 filings with E-Sigéom[35] and has filed a Consent of Qualified Persons report to Provincial Securities Commissions for Nemaska Exploration under sedar.com[21]
