Mineral Exploration Policies

These operational policies provide direction on topics related to exploration plan and exploration permit. These policies are developed to aid clients on implementation of relevant Mining Act provisions and Regulations.

Note: Policies can change on a frequent basis. For the most current version, check with a provincial mining recorder.

Under subsection 35(2) of Ontario's Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act, the Ministry is required to make these policies available for public viewing in a reading room or designated office. The Ministry of Northern Development and Mines has chosen the Internet as the reading room that can reach the widest group of its clients.
