Mineral Exploration and Mining
British Columbia’s mineral exploration and mining industry is an integral part of the provincial economy. Competitive taxes, an ample supply of low-cost power and government's commitment to the industry make this province an ideal place to invest.
The Mines and Mineral Resources Division of the Ministry of Energy and Mines manages British Columbia's substantial mineral resources. The Division implements policies and programs that encourage the responsible development of these resources and ensures that all mining activities respect the safety of workers, the public and the environment.
