In recent years, the field of "mines and environment" strongly guided the development of research in the mining sector at Université du Québec en Abitibi en Témiscamingue (UQAT) and Polytechnique Montreal. The variety and quality of the scientific publications is reflecting the expertise and know-how of the Institute’s researchers. Several of the RIME UQAT-Polytechnique developments have been integrated in today’s mining practices in Quebec, Canada and elsewhere around the world.
