The Quebec Geoscience Centre is a joint research centre founded in 1988 following an agreement signed between the Institut national de la recherche scientifique (INRS), a branch of the UniversitŽ du QuŽbec, and the GSC. The Centre brings together scientists from GSC Quebec and INRS GŽoressources to collaborate on projects, spanning the many disciplines of the earth sciences, together with researchers from universities, provincial governments and private corporations. This collaboration among the different geoscientific backgrounds contributes to a more thorough understanding of the geological prosesses under study. GSC Quebec contributes by providing a comprehensive knowledge of the geology and geochemistryof the earth's crust, its mineralization and surficial deposits, with an emphasis on eastern Canada and, in particular, the Appalachian and Grenville geological provinces.
