In Search of Mineral Resources
Author(s): Isabelle Duval
Several indicators may suggest that the Cap-Rouge Colony have tried to exploit certain minerals resources at its establishment. Stones such as pyrite, quartz and sandstone were studied to further the use of minerals by the French in the mid-16th century. Historical and archaeological data will be compared to better understand the beginnings of the development of mining resources in the Quebec region.
