B.C. Mine Information Website
The Ministry of Energy, Mines and Petroleum Resources has collaborated with the Environmental Assessment Office and the Ministry of Environment and Climate Change to develop a new BC Mine Information website. This site makes mine-related information from all three agencies available online in one place for the first time.
The BC Mine Information website currently profiles 15 major mines across the province (7 operating metal mines, 6 operating coal mines, and 2 under construction metal mines). Authorizations issued under the Environmental Assessment Act, Environmental Management Act and Mines Act, 2016 inspection records, and recent annual reclamation and annual dam safety inspection reports are available for all 15 mines. More information will be continually added, and other mines will be added to the site in the coming months.
