Mine Closure and Post Closure

Reclamation Standards

Under BC law, the mine manager is responsible for ensuring that reclamation standards and requirements for mine site reclamation are fulfilled throughout the life of the mine, including at closure and post-closure. This manager must be qualified and competent, as well as well versed and up-to-date on the process at all times.110 The mine manager is not only responsible for the mine, its construction, closure, and reclamation, but can also act as liaison with First Nations resource managers during ongoing consultation through the life of a mine.
