Fairmont’s Quebec properties cover numerous occurrences of high-grade titaniferous magnetite with vanadium. Where these occurrences have been tested they have display exceptional uniformity with respect to grade. These occurrences are of considerable interest due to their proximity to tide water, with the Grand Anse Sea Terminal at the Port of Saguenay located within 100km of all of Fairmont’s Quebec properties.
