"Our new name, brand and refocused message better reflects the evolution of our company.

QC Copper and Gold is reinterpreting this past underground operation as a high-grade open-pit copper project. Opemiska has excellent infrastructure in place including a power station and direct access to the Canadian National Railway and Highway 113.
