The government of Ontario introduced amending legislation on December 2, 2015 (the “Proposed Mining Amendment”) in furtherance of the modernization of the Mining Act (Ontario) (the “Mining Act”). The modernization process began in earnest in 2009 with the passing of the Mining Amendment Act (“Bill 173”) and represented the first major overhaul of the Mining Act in over a century.
