Reports of Work (commonly called mineral assessment reports) are exploration reports completed by prospectors and industry on their mineral claims. They are received and processed by the Mining and Mineral Resources Branch and kept for a confidential period of two years from the date of submission. These reports are made public once the confidential period is finished or once all claims in a report have lapsed or were surrendered. A claim holder may decide to make a report of work public upon submission to the Recorder.

Currently, the province holds over 8,000 assessment reports, most of which are available in a digital format. Some large reports were scanned into smaller files in order to reduce file size. Electronic copies of these reports are available for download from the mineral reports of work search tool or contact [email protected]
