The exploration and mining of surface mineral substances
The Mining Act deals with
the management of mineral resources and the granting of exploration
rights for mineral substances during the exploration phase. It also
deals with the granting of rights pertaining to the use of these
substances during the mining phase. Finally, the act establishes
the rights and obligations of the holders of mining rights to ensure
maximum development of Québec’s mineral resources.
The Ministère des
Ressources naturelles has made it a priority to publicize
the content of this new legislation along with the procedures that
must be followed for compliance. With this objective in mind, four
documents are available:
These documents provide mining stakeholders with
the necessary information regarding their rights and obligations
for each of the subjects.
This publication deals with the exploration and
mining of surface mineral substances. Its purpose is to provide
our clients about the terms and conditions for granting, exercising
and renewing any rights related to these activities. To explore
for these substances, the client must acquire claims.
