Project summary

For the Rose lithium-tantalum mine project to go forward, Hydro-Québec will need to relocale a 4.1 km segment of the Eastmain-1-Nemiscau line, which currently cuts through the future open-pit site. The relocated line segment will bypass the pit to the east, keeping a minimal distance of 500 metres from the boundaries of the planned mining site. For electricity supply, Hydro-Québec plans to connect the mine to the 315-kV Eastmain-a-Nemiscau line. A 315/25-kV transformer substation will be construct, west of the connection point. No new structure will be required for this connection.

Details on location

The project is located in the Nord-du-Québec administrative region, on the territory of Eeyou Istchee Baie-James, on Category III lands, 40 kilometers north of the Cree village of Nemaska.
