There are many legal issues facing the mining industry.

MacKenzie Fujisawa addresses the business needs of the mining sector by providing advice and representation in matters respecting:


  • Business formation and organization
  • Purchase and sales agreements
  • Acquisition strategy and defense
  • Due diligence for mergers and acquisitions
  • Financing strategy
  • Commodities financing and marketing compliance
  • Real estate advising on leases, easements, mineral rights, and other licenses
  • Tax advising on property, resources, capital gains, and income
  • Construction contracts and liability mitigation measures
  • Compliance services related to employment law and safety regulations
  • Civil litigation relating to mining operations
  • Judicial review of regulatory decisions
  • Prosecutions of regulatory offences


Our mining practice group also addresses regulatory issues. Environmental law, indigenous rights, safety regulations, and many other laws apply to mining business operations. It is important to have a comprehensive compliance strategy in place before starting any mining operation. Some regulations apply before mining even starts. For example, if a business intends to market its mining to investors as commodities futures. Our lawyers ensure that mining businesses are in compliance with all applicable legal regulations at all stages of business operations.
