Maps

BC’s Mineral Tenure Act, with its roots back to the gold rush days, still allows prospectors to stake claims, explore and take samples without consultation or consent from First Nations or private land owners, much as it did in the 1850s. Here are a collection of maps from various parts of the province showing the mineral staking in that region. The BC Mining Reform Coalition is urging the government to update this law to require local consent.
