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,

Hello.

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.

As part of the Land Access and Use Committee (LAUC) a survey has been created by the Association of Mineral Exploration of BC (AMEBC), that will track your experience with the current permitting system, what is working well, what needs improvement, delays, etc, so that the information can be used to help government build a better system.

The link to the survey is: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/T82TVNY

The survey will remain open until the end of August. If you have any questions, please contact Jill Pardoe who is in charge of this initiative. Jill can be contacted at: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
