Newfoundland and Labrador is a prime location for the exploration and development of a wide range of natural resources. Our resources include both offshore and onshore oil and gas deposits and a wide spectrum of rich mineral deposits. Exploration activity is ongoing in both the petroleum and mining sectors and is supported by continually expanding stores of geoscience information.
The province is also blessed with forest and agriculture resources which contribute significantly to the provincial economy. The Department of Natural Resources is committed to supporting further development of these sectors.
The following link will provide more detailed information on opportunities in each resource sector. Further information on investing and doing business in Newfoundland and Labrador can be found on the web site for the Department of Business, Tourism, Culture and Rural Development.
