The sustainable development strategy of L. Fournier & Fils is at the heart of the operations undertaken in 2014 regarding the valorization and second transformation of 20 million tons of abandoned mining sterile of the Sigma mine, located near the urban area of the town of Val-d’Or. Efforts and work on the site already improved significantly the imprint on the ecology of a vast area and the industrial landscape of our collectivity.
