AME is advocating for a number of measures that the government can take to support the mineral exploration sector as a result of the COVID-19 outbreak. One of these is to temporarily expand the criteria for use of flow-through funds to include desktop geological work and administrative costs for 18 months starting on April 1, 2020.
To help support this request, we need specific feedback from members on how temporarily expanding the criteria for use of flow-through funds will benefit mineral explorers.
- How will this benefit your company and ensure business continuity?
- Will this allow you to retain employees/contractors you might have to otherwise layoff? If so, how many people will you be able to retain.
- How will this position you to get back to field work quickly once the outbreak subsides?
Where possible, please provide numbers or measurable benefits as part of your feedback.
All information provided will remain confidential.
Please send your feedback and tell us how ASAP to Rob Stevens at [email protected]
