It’s been 26 years since the first edition of Canadian Law of Mining was published, and much has changed in that time. Fortunately, all of those developments are reflected in this updated version written by mining law expert Barry Barton. This comprehensive and authoritative resource seeks to provide “an organized account of the law” while evaluating “the state of the law … [including] the work of policy makers, law drafters and judges.” In short, as Barton explains in the text’s opening chapter, “The book seeks to discuss mining law as well as describe it.”

A wide-ranging treatise
The mining industry plays a critical role in Canada’s economy, with mineral exploration activity taking place in almost every province and territory across the country. Canadian Law of Mining, 2nd Edition covers the main areas of mining law through expert commentary and analysis on the latest developments and leading case law. The areas covered include:

  • Property law – private ownership of part of the land vs. public ownership of minerals
  • Mining legislation – mining acts and regulations in provinces and territories across Canada
  • Lands and social framework – environmental values, and the relationships between mining and the people affected by mining operations
  • Transactions – financing and international deals as well as contract law governing these transactions

This treatise addresses the full range of topics related to mining law, including information about mineral rights, claim-staking, disposition and transfer of mining rights, interests and royalties, acquisition of rights and interests from the Crown, withdrawal of lands from mining, surface rights, and mining issues related to the rights and interests of Indigenous peoples. It also includes a chapter on Canadian companies mining internationally.
