THE VOICE OF THE CANADIAN

MINING INDUSTRY SINCE 1935

Facts and Figures 2015

MAC’s annual flagship publication detailing the latest trends in the Canadian mining industry.

The Mining Association of Canada (MAC) is the national organization of the Canadian mining industry. We represent companies involved in mineral exploration, mining, smelting, refining and semi-fabrication. Our member companies account for most of Canada’s output of metals and minerals.

MAC’s functions include advocacy, stewardship and collaboration. Our goals are to promote the industry’s interests nationally and internationally, to work with governments on policies affecting minerals, to inform the public and to encourage member firms to cooperate to solve common problems. We work closely with provincial and territorial mining associations, other industries, and environmental and community groups in Canada and around the world.
