  • In the late nineties, the Bre-X scandal caused the worldwide reputation of Canada’s mining industry to suffer a huge blow as information disclosed in press releases by Bre-X Minerals Ltd. (“Bre-X”), a Calgary-based company, regarding its discovery in Indonesia of the world’s largest gold deposit was revealed to be untrue. It is said that investors lost an estimated six billion dollars in this scheme. Nevertheless, investors continued to invest in Canadian mining companies and more interest was recently generated when the Quebec government unveiled its Plan Nord.
