Mining Regulations

Crown lands in Nunavut and the Northwest Territories are managed pursuant to the Territorial Lands Act and its related Regulations, including the Nunavut Mining Regulations and the Northwest Territories Mining Regulations. These regulations deal with mineral tenure and royalties on mining production.

Starting from April 1, 2014, land and resource management responsibilities in the Northwest Territories will be devolved to the Government of the Northwest Territories. The new territorial mining regulations are expected to substantially mirror the federal mining regulations. However, the federal Northwest Territories Mining Regulations will continue to apply to certain specific parcels of lands in the Northwest Territories. These lands are listed in Schedule 4 of the Northwest Territories Devolution Agreement.
