FAME/Explore BC Reports

 

The F.A.M.E. Program, first introduced in the 1986/87 fiscal year, was a provincial initiative with $5 million in funding to promote private sector mineral exploration and mine development in British Columbia.  The program was introduced in response to the recession of the early 1980s and the resulting reduction in mineral exploration and development activity in the province. 

 

The program was discontinued in 1988.  For more information on Assessment Reports filed under the Financial Assistance for Mineral Exploration (F.A.M.E.), click here for F.A.M.E. Reports in 1986, 1987.

 

Similar to the F.A.M.E. Program, The Explore B.C. Program (1994 to 1996) was part of a five-year $100 million program to provide significant tax reductions and exploration incentives to assist and promote private sector mineral exploration in British Columbia.  It was designed to provide part of the risk capital required by mineral exploration companies to finance their programs, to extend the economic lives of existing mines and contribute to community stability in existing mining regions.
