About Fairmont

Fairmont's Quebec properties cover numerous occurrences of high-grade titaniferous magnetite with vanadium. Where these occurrences have been tested they have display exceptional uniformity with respect to grade. These occurrences are of considerable interest due to their proximity to tide water, with the Grand Anse Sea Terminal at the Port of Saguenay located within 100km of all of Fairmont's Quebec properties. Fairmont also has high purity quartz and quartzite properties along Quebec's North Shore from Lac-Saint-Jean to Baie-Comeau. Fairmont's goal is to become one of the dominant publically traded industrial minerals companies in Canada.
