View Information Circular 1993-06 (PDF, 1.9 MB)


British Columbia has a long history of mining. Coal, copper and other minerals have always and will continue to play a very important role in the economic, social and community development of our province. As we move further into the decade of the 1990s the government of British Columbia will ensure a healthy climate for exploration and improve our overall competitiveness in the global economy. There is strong potential for development in our mineral sector covering a wide array of commodities and related processing activities. This booklet just begins to describe the potential.
