Ontario approves changes to mining disclosure requirements

June 24, 2011

The Ontario Minister of Finance has now approved amendments to National Instrument 43-101 Standards of Disclosure for Mineral Projects. As we discussed in April, the changes are generally intended to increase the effectiveness of mining disclosure rules by eliminating or reducing the scope of various requirements and providing increased flexibility to mining issuers and qualified persons in certain areas. The amendments are scheduled to come into force on June 30.
