Full text
101. The Minister shall grant a lease in respect of all or part of a parcel of land that is subject to one or more claims if the claim holder establishes the existence of indicators of the presence of a workable deposit, meets the conditions and pays the annual rental prescribed by regulation.
The lease cannot be granted before the rehabilitation and restoration plan is approved in accordance with this Act, and the authorization mentioned in section 22, 31.5, 164 or 201 of the Environment Quality Act (chapter Q-2) has been issued.
Despite the second paragraph, the Minister may grant a lease if the time needed to obtain the authorization is unreasonable.
The Minister shall make public the rehabilitation and restoration plan as submitted to the Minister for approval and register it in the public register of real and immovable mining rights for public information and consultation purposes as part of the environmental impact assessment and review procedure provided for in the Environment Quality Act.
An application for a mining lease must be accompanied by a survey of the parcel of land involved, unless it has already been entirely surveyed, a report describing the nature, extent and probable value of the deposit, certified by an engineer or a geologist who meets the qualification requirements determined by regulation, and a project feasibility study as well as a scoping and market study as regards processing in Québec.
At the Minister’s request, the holder of the mining right shall provide the Minister with any document and information relating to the mining project.
The Minister may subject the mining lease to conditions designed to avoid conflicts with other uses of the territory.
