Mining is a complex, global business. While the demand for raw materials continues unabated, commodity prices are continually fluctuating, and capital investments in mining projects are relentlessly scrutinized. Projects are often undertaken as joint ventures between multiple parties in increasingly remote areas where there are unfamiliar regulatory regimes. In such an environment, the risks are high, and disputes frequently arise, necessitating the expertise and counsel of a reputed mining law firm.
McMillan’s Mining Industry Group has been advising Canadian and international clients since the late 1920s. We play a crucial role in putting Canadian companies at global centre stage in mining activity and financing. Our clients include junior exploration companies, intermediate and senior producers, financial institutions, professional geoscientist organizations and investment dealers involved in exploration and mine financing in Canada and around the world.
We also work with engineers, First Nations, foreign governments, regulators, stock exchanges, domestic governments and professional advisors, bringing a complete perspective to every client matter. Our expertise in environmental and natural resources law and aboriginal law have earned us experience in negotiating earn-in, joint venture operating, strategic alliance, royalty and metal streaming agreements. We’re involved in exploration, development, project finance and production transactions, and advise mining clients concerning employment, environmental and corporate social responsibility, mine closure and reclamation issues.
Our mining lawyers with deep domain expertise in energy, environmental and natural resources law frequently collaborate with our banking, corporate, securities, litigation and tax practices, enabling us to offer comprehensive business strategies that effectively deal with the industry’s rapid pace of change.
We’re also the only Canadian business law firm with a partnering government relations agency, McMillan Vantage Policy Group, consisting of several highly accomplished advisors and senior counsel from the Canadian public service who have relationships in numerous countries around the world.
Through this collaboration, we offer our clients comprehensive business strategies that effectively deal with the industry’s rapid pace of change.
