Mining: Civil Immunity For "Good Samaritan" Mine Rehabilitation

The Ministry of Northern Development and Mines has posted a proposal to amend the Mining Act to protect mining companies participating in voluntary rehabilitation of Crown-held abandoned mines. This would apply so long as the volunteers did not cause the historic “hazard".

The proposal was published for consultation until February 15, 2007, as part of the Brownfield Legislative Reform posting AF07E0001.
