The Ministry of Energy, Mines and Petroleum Resources is pleased to have played an active role in the sponsoring and organization of the Third Annual B.C. Mine Reclamation Symposium.


This year the Symposium emphasized the reclamation of metal mines and also dealt, in part, in the environmental protection, exploration disturbance and reclamation research related to metal mining. Attending participants represented all sectors of industry, government, consultants and universities concerned in reclamation. Their contributions ensured the success of the Symposium.


Since the First B.C. Mine Reclamation Symposium held in 1977, communication concerning reclamation has been augmented and improved through discussions at the Second Symposium in 1978 and the Third B.C. Mine Reclamation Symposium held this year. It is evident that the symposium approach has contributed greatly to the solutions of reclamation problems and the development of reasonable programs and policy in B.C.
