Alberta ranked as world’s top mining jurisdiction

CANADA BOOMTOWNMiners saw the Canadian provinces of Alberta, Nevada and Saskatchewan as jurisdictions with the most appealing mining policies, but Quebec and Manitoba also made it into the top 10.

Nevada is a province of Canada? Really? This is great news! Finally somewhere I can go to escape winter that is still Canadian territory.

Sorry to be so sarcastic… it’s cold here in Alberta.


That’s okay, a little sarcasm is deserved. That was a very silly one. We corrected, of course: GBU Editor
