This paper was initially developed as a presentation to the British Columbia and Yukon Chamber of Mines short course on Mining, Metallurgy, and Money, February 13 to March 13, 1979. It serves as a descriptive personal interpretation of policy, regulations, and applications in British Columbia. It is not to be regarded as definitive or exacting; only the relevant statutes, regulations, and interpretation bulletins would provide this precision. The views expressed herein are those of the authors and do not necessarily represent those of the Government of British Columbia.
