The Canadian Shield Could Host the Next Bonanza Discovery: Eric Lemieux (4/14/16)
Canadian Shield

Gold supply is getting tighter, deposits of quality are getting rarer and the project development timeline is getting longer. Enter Canada. The Canadian Shield still offers the possibility of break-out discoveries, says PearTree Securities analyst Eric Lemieux. The recent spate of M&A activity points to the potential of the region, and Lemieux discusses several companies that are well positioned to add value.

PearTree Securities' Eric Lemieux Enumerates Québec Companies with Cash and Catalysts (11/9/15)
Québec Province within Canada

Few know and understand Québec-based mining projects like Eric Lemieux, mining analyst with PearTree Securities Inc. He understands that the low commodity price environment is hindering widespread exploration but explains that for companies with cash, exploration dollars go further in tough times. In this interview with The Gold Report, Lemieux provides some perspective on several brownfield exploration projects he recently visited in Québec's Abitibi and Val-d'Or regions, while providing updates on other Québec gold and other mining projects with near-term catalysts.

Quebec Is Back, Ready for Renaissance: Eric Lemieux (3/18/15)
Quebec map

During the period when Parti Québécois controlled Québec, the province's attractiveness as a mining jurisdiction fell from #1 to #21 in the Frasier Institute's Annual Survey of Mining Companies. But when Philippe Couillard's Liberal government won a majority in April 2014, the market got the message. Eric Lemieux, consulting technical adviser to Toronto-based Peartree Securities, says that the Osisko Mining bidding war showed that companies were willing to pay a premium for Québec-based assets. Since then other takeovers have happened. In this interview with The Gold Report, Lemieux discusses some promising projects in Québec and other stable jurisdictions.
