See Working Towards the Same Goals for more information on the role each department plays in helping you move your exploration and mining project forward.
Any application listed in this guide can be filed directly with the provincial department involved.
While the guide covers the general activities that take place at each stage of exploration and new mine development, we know each project is distinct. If you are looking for specific information, use the Site Search engine for quick referencing.
You will also find a list of acts and regulations relevant to the subject matter presented in each section of the guide. The Exploration and Mining Guide is designed to complement, but not replace the acts and regulations that apply to exploration, development and mining. If there is a conflict between the information presented in the guide and the acts/regulations, the latter prevails.
