The Mining Industry in British Columbia

BC is Canada’s largest exporter of metallurgical coal (used in steelmaking) and one of its largest copper producers. BC also produces significant amounts of gold, silver, lead, and zinc, and more than 30 industrial minerals including gypsum and limestone. 2016 was another challenging year for the industry due to the continued volatility in global metal and mineral prices. That said, the picture began to brighten towards the end of 2016. The price of some global commodities, in particular coal and copper, started to pick up again towards the end of year and held their ground into the first part of 2017. The stability of prices and a more optimistic industry outlook have led to increased investment in the sector.
