Canadian Metals Inc. is focused exclusively on the development of its Langis Project, a high-purity silica deposit located in the province of Quebec. The Company is rapidly positioning itself to eventually become a North American ferrosilicon and silicon metal producer.
For almost a decade, quartz from the Langis quarry has been exported to Europe for ferrosilicon production. Canadian Metals has rapidly built an international management team with local talent with a view to implementing a ferrosilicon plant in Quebec for converting the Langis silica into high grade ferrosilicon. With the goal to create approximately one hundred highly qualified direct jobs and some three hundred indirect jobs, Canadian Metals strongly believes that the Province of Quebec benefits from all of the required infrastructures, including transportation, port facilities, clean and renewable energy sourceand skilled labor in order to successfully implement this metals and minerals project.
