Budget 2013 introduces a renewed commitment to the Mineral Exploration Tax Credit (METC), as well as to key investments in skills training and aboriginal communities, says the Prospectors & Developers Association of Canada.

“The mineral exploration industry is a key driver for our economic recovery and provides critical economic stimulus to some of Canada’s most remote communities,” says Ross Gallinger, PDAC executive director.
