Excerpt: 

CURRENT SITUATION: Since September 2016, Barriere Lake has sustained a land protection camp near a proposed open pit copper mining site on our territory. The junior mining company Copper One’s mining claim at the Riviere Dore covers over 300 square kilometers of Barriere Lake’s land base (please see map on next page), which contains the La Vérendrye wildlife reserve. On January 26, 2017, the Government of Quebec announced that it intended to suspend the mining claims of Copper One; this was confirmed on 8 February 2017. Although this was a step in the right direction, more than 90% of the ancestral territory of the First Nation remains open to mining – an unacceptable situation for our First Nation.
