Mineral exploration in BC is the search for a valuable mineral deposit in a sustainable and environmentally sound way.
Environmental protection is a fundamental part of BC’s mining lifecycle and is monitored before, during and after use.
Mining is the safest heavy industry in BC and provides the minerals we use to support our everyday lives.
Stone, sand, and gravel is the most abundant natural resource available and is continually recycled in the form of asphalt and concrete.
