ⓘ La Corne

La Corne is a municipality in the Canadian province of Quebec in Abitibi Regional County Municipality.

The place is named after 1703-1761 Louis de La Corne, a French naval officer who was wounded in the battle of Sainte-Foy in 1760. Until 1978, the name was incorrectly spelled as Lacorne.

From 1955 to 1965, La Corne was home to Canadas only lithium mine. The underground mine had 150 meters 490 feet deep shaft and lateral workings on three levels, and provided lithium to the glass and ceramic industries. With the advent of lithium batteries for electric cars and many consumer electronic products, the mine is currently being studied the issue of opening in late 2012 as a quarry.
