The Nadleh Whut'en Territory is rich in mineral resources. While the Endako Mine is the only operational mine within our territory, there are many mineral tenures and exploration activities that are of concern to our First Nation.
We are in the process of developing an encompassing policy for stewardship of our territory, including for mining and mineral resources. While operations like the Endako Mine provide employment opportunities for some of our members, there are short and long term impacts from mining to our lands and people. We require that mining exploration activities within our territory should be approved by Nadleh Whut'en prior to BC or federal permits being issued. For more information contact our office.
