Le créneau « mines et environnement » a fortement orienté le développement de la recherche dans le secteur minier à l’Université du Québec en Abitibi-Témiscamingue (UQAT) ainsi qu’à Polytechnique Montréal au cours des dernières années. La qualité des publications reflète bien l’expertise et le savoir-faire des chercheurs de l’Institut. Plusieurs découvertes issues des travaux de recherche de l’IRME UQAT-Polytechnique s’intègrent d’ailleurs aujourd’hui aux pratiques minières au Québec, de même qu’ailleurs au Canada et sur la planète.
