Mining is one of Newfoundland and Labrador's largest and oldest industries, and a major contributor to the economy of our province, especially in rural areas. A total of fourteen mineral commodities are produced or mined in the province. Seven metal mines currently produce iron ore, nickel, copper, zinc, cobalt and gold. Other operations mine pyrophyllite, limestone and dolomite, amongst other commodities. Our mining and mineral exploration companies directly provide high-paying jobs to more than 8000 men and women throughout the Province. Expenditures by these companies find their way into all corners of Newfoundland and Labrador.
This area contains some guidelines related to development and mining in the Province.
