Canada is one of the largest contributors to the global gold supply and accounted for more than 5% of global gold production in 2020. Gold is scattered across the Canadian landscape in a variety of gold mining regions and districts, with the most prolific located between Ontario, Quebec, and British Columbia. Some of the largest gold-bearing deposits in Canada include the Detour Lake, Canadian Malartic, Brucejack, and Meliadine projects, located in Cochrane, Val-d’Or, Stewart, and Rankin Inlet, respectively. Production will be mainly supported by the Detour Lake, Canadian Malartic, Meadowbank Complex, Meliadine, Eagle Gold, and Young-Davidson mines, among others.
What are the market dynamics in the Canada gold mining sector?
Industries and economies all over the world have been impacted by the COVID-19 crisis and the mineral exploration and production industry in Canada too has been significantly affected. Provinces across Canada implemented various restrictions on operations in response to the pandemic. While mining operations were declared essential and therefore allowed to continue during the lockdown and restrictions, many miners in Canada curbed production, while a few suspended operations completely.
Canada’s mining industry is governed by different departments and agencies under provincial governments. However, in cases such as mineral activities on federal lands and offshore areas, as well as the usage of uranium as nuclear fuel (from exploration to the disposal of mine waste), a pivotal role is played by the federal government. The Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) governs the tax-related laws in the country. It also manages several socio-economic benefit programs such as incentive systems delivered through the tax system.
Which are the key active mines in the Canada gold mining market?
