Part B: Mineral Rights - Part B-6: Beneficiation - Processing, Trade & Transport - 35. Beneficiation – Processing, Trade and Transport | 35.4 Requirements for Applicants

Once eligibility has been determined, an applicant must meet specific requirements related to his application for a specific licence to be granted under this Act. As noted above, depending on the jurisdiction, processing, trade and/or transportation of development minerals conducted as a business separate from extraction of those minerals will generally be licenced by an authority other than the Regulating Authority for exploration and exploitation of minerals, such as the Ministry of Industry and Trade or the Ministry of Transportation and/or a provincial/state regulating entity. In the case of large scale, complex processing and national or regional trade and transportation, the licensing should be the responsibility of a national regulating entity; while in the case of small and medium scale processing, and trade and transportation of development minerals within a single province or state, the licensing should be the responsibility of a provincial/state regulating entity. However, to assure consistency and clarity, the application requirements for all of these licences can be set forth in the mining law, to be implemented by the appropriate licensing authority.

This provision will describe the documentation required for each licence so as provide a universal and uniform understanding of the requirements to fulfil in order for applications to be successfully processed and licences issued by the relevant authorising entities.
