The Environmental Code of Practice for Metal Mines describes operational activities and associated environmental concerns of this industrial sector. The document applies to the complete life cycle of mining, from exploration to mine closure, and environmental management practices are recommended to mitigate the identified environmental concerns.

Through the Northern Contaminated Sites Program (CSP), the Department manages a number of contaminated properties abandoned by their previous occupants. The contamination of these properties is the result of private sector mining and oil and gas activities and government military activity that occurred over a half a century ago, when environmental impacts were not fully understood.

The Abandoned Mine Site Characterization and Cleanup Handbook (Handbook) is the result of the collective efforts and contributions of a number of individuals. During the earliest days of Handbook development, Mike Bishop of EPA Region 8 lead the effort to develop a Superfund Mine Waste Reference Document for EPA project managers working on mine.

Mining companies must also place a security with the Province to ensure reclamation obligations are kept. This security is only returned once the mine site has been reclaimed to a satisfactory level and there are no ongoing monitoring or maintenance requirements.

The provincial government requires companies to post a reclamation security bond with the Ministry of Natural Resource Operations before they can start mining or exploration work at any site.
