The "ndp" refers to the New Democratic Party which governs
the province of B.C. They have been at odds with the mining
community ever since the expropriation of the huge Windy-Craggy
poly-metalic discovery once owned by Geddes Res, later by Royal
Oak Mines. We have some of the most stringent regulations in North
America when it comes to new mine developement. As a ball park
figure you're looking at anywhere up to 2 years worth of various
impact studies to obtain a mine developement certificate. I'm not
saying this is a bad idea but it sure is something a mining company
or an investor has to take into account.
As for major players, I think Placer Dome would be a likely
contender due to the close proximity of the Mac property to Placer's
Endako mine 100 km to the south. Who knows, if all goes well for
Spokane, Rio Algom might want back in.
Sorry for the long-winded response but I already trimmed about
2 pages worth off my original reply ;-).
Good Luck, Leonard
