Abstract: Northwest B.C. is unusually endowed with mineral potential and deposits. In spite of this the area is presently underexplored. Pressures from land use uncertainty, coupled with a fundamentally changed financial structure for venture capital financing, have combined to keep exploration expenditures in the region at low levels. Strategic, long-term approaches to land use issues are proposed for the mineral industry segment which chooses to remain in B.C. The promise of the Commission on Resources and Environment is highlighted and a strategy base is outlined which emphasizes the importance of the primary industries to hinterland communities in the northwest. Industry-wide pro-activity is strongly advocated as an important strategic element.
