On March 8, the Ministry of Energy Mines and Natural Gas announced that it will no longer require permits for some low impact exploration activities commencing September 2013.

If a permit is in place it will not be necessary to obtain an additional permit for IP surveys and exploration drilling of mine sites. In addition, the timing of the work to be carried out can be extended for up to two years. 

It will still be necessary to provide 30 days advance noticed to the mines inspector who will then give notice to the affected First Nations.
