Resource Opportunities: Mines

Newfoundland and Labrador is geologically diverse and is richly endowed with a wide spectrum of minerals, including iron ore, base and precious metals, uranium, tungsten, molybdenum, antimony, rare earths and industrial minerals. Our multi-billion dollar mining industry provides a wide variety of commodities to the world market.

The Province also hosts a vigorous mineral exploration sector, including many locally-based companies and individuals who provide expertise and financing to seek the next generation of mineral wealth.

Yet it remains relatively under-explored compared to other mineral-rich jurisdictions, thus creating a unique opportunity for mineral resource investment and new mineral finds.

We encourage you to learn more about the many opportunities that await you in this province and to Explore Newfoundland and Labrador.
