Canada's North is rich in mineral resources and the development of these resources provides socio economic benefits to Northerners. Crown lands in the Northwest Territories and Nunavut are managed pursuant to the Territorial Lands Act and its related Regulations. In the northern territories sub-surface lands include hard-rock minerals, precious gems and coal. The rights to these materials are administered through the Northwest Territories and Nunavut Mining Regulations (formerly known as the Canada Mining Regulations) and the Territorial Coal Regulations . There is a distinction between sub-surface minerals and surface mineral substances that have specific purposes such as carving stone and building materials. These special use surface minerals are administered through the Territorial Quarry Regulations .
For more information on the Northwest Territories and Nunavut Mining Regulations, the Territorial Coal Regulations, mining royalty, major mining projects, Mineral and Energy Resource Assessments for the purpose of determination of park boundaries, or for more information on policy and legislative issues or initiatives affecting mineral exploration and development in the North, please contact:
