Mineral Exploration and Mining
The Mineral Titles Branch administers the legislation governing the acquisition, exploration and development of mineral, placer mineral, and coal rights in the Province.
Mining is one of British Columbia's safest heavy industries, and the Province is committed to ensuring that B.C. remains a world leader in mine health and safety practices.
There are generally two different levels of mine permitting in B.C.—"major mine" and "regional" permits.
