For the past 100 years Manitoba has been one of the most productive mining regions in the world for Nickel, Copper, Zinc, Gold, Lithium, and Cesium. Currently Manitoba is home to 9 operating mines which include mines across the mineral rich Thompson, Lynn Lake, Leaf Rapids, Snow Lake, and Flin Flon mining districts.
In particular, the Flin Flon Greenstone Belt is the largest Paleoproterozoic VMS district in the world, host to 27 significant deposits originally containing over 154 million tonnes of Copper-Zinc, including ore mined from the reknowned Trout Lake and 777 mines.
QMC Quantum Minerals Corp. owns 100% interest in both the Namew Lake VMS and Carrot River Projects. With the Namew Lake VMS Project situated in the Flin Flon VMS district and the Carrot River Project in proximity to the mining center of Thompson, QMC is operating within the well-developed infrastructure established by the mining friendly province of Manitoba.
The metallic and industrial minerals sector of Manitoba accounts for approximately 48.4 % of the province's second largest primary resource industry. In 2012, Manitoba produced
