The ministry's mandate is to manage Crown coal, mineral and placer rights in a manner that:
provides continuing economic benefit from resource development
supports an active industry and
is responsive to public concerns

To fulfil the mandate, the ministry administers the laws and manages the recording system pertaining to the acquisition and maintenance of mineral, placer and coal rights in the province. The ministry maintains records and maps which indicate areas available for location and acquisition of title as well as the location and status of mineral and coal titles acquired under the Mineral Tenure Act and Coal Act.

Timely information is important to our clients. The ministry strives to distribute information in ways that are convenient to our clients. Seven Gold Commissioners throughout B.C. provide 'real-time' information in traditional ways, while the ministry web site provides Internet access to title information through the use of the latest technology.
