This holiday season, all of our Supporters are entered to win an $800 Shopping Spree Giveaway!

This is a continuation of Premier Christy Clark’s B.C. Jobs Plan, which announced the mine building and red tape reducing back in September. The mines include the Copper Mountain Mine, near Princeton, which began production in June 2011, as well as Mount Milligan by Prince George, New Afton by Kamloops, Barkerville by Quesnel and Red Chris by Dease Lake in northwest B.C.

Although the province is already on its way with these mines, the Strategy is meant to reaffirm the province’s commitment to develop mines in an environmentally, socially and economically responsible manner.

“Mineral exploration and mining is booming in B.C.,” said Coleman. “While meeting global demand drives a competitive industry, our government’s plan starts at home with a strategy that ensures our mining industry is well-positioned to create opportunities for British Columbians in an environmentally responsible manner.”

All of the aforementioned mines have begun construction or are about to begin.
