April 19, 2017, Vancouver, BC: The Mining Association of British Columbia (MABC), Association for Mineral Exploration (AME), and Mining Suppliers Association of British Columbia (MSABC) launched the Vote Mining campaign today to raise awareness about the importance of the mineral exploration and mining sector to the provincial economy and to encourage citizens to ask their candidates how they will support BC’s mining industry.
Votemining.ca is the campaign’s official website and it provides British Columbians with the tools and knowledge to ask their candidates the important questions. The Vote Mining ‘Take Action’ tool will also facilitate voters’ ability to write to their candidates and ask how they plan to support mineral exploration and mining in BC.
“BC’s mineral exploration and mining industry remains a major driver for the provincial economy. As partners in the Vote Mining Campaign, we wish to provide British Columbians with factual information that will showcase how important it is for candidates and voters to support such a critical industry that creates local opportunities for people living in every region of the province.”, said Gavin C. Dirom, President & Chief Executive Officer of the Association of Mineral Exploration (AME).

Rick Conte, Executive Vice President of the Association for Mineral Exploration, has requested feedback from Chamber members on a review by the Ministry of Energy and Mines of the "Financial Security Policy for Mine Reclamation".
His request was outlined in a letter to EKCM below,
AME has been asked by the Ministry of Energy and Mines to participate in a review of the financial security policy for mine reclamation. The security policy “…must have at its core the twin goals of protecting the taxpayer and industry competitiveness.“
You would see this policy matter in terms of the security bond that is required with the Notice of Work.
