Mining has been at the vanguard of Canada’s evolution into an international leader in natural resource development and extraction. Accordingly, it’s no surprise that Canada has also become a recognized leader in mining finance. Senior, intermediate, and junior mining companies across Canada call upon the lawyers of Owen Bird’s mining and corporate securities group for full-service counsel focused on ensuring these clients’ success.

Owen Bird’s mining and corporate securities lawyers have assisted with the acquisition of mineral tenures and mines within Canada and throughout Central and South America. We provide our clients with advice on a wide range of topics including acquisition, joint ventures, corporate structures, finance and taxation, securities regulation, federal and provincial permitting processes, environmental and contaminated sites legislation, and aboriginal title claims and contracts. We have also been instrumental in resolving tenure disputes and compensation claims.

Mining reporting issuers, underwriters, and lenders also rely on the decades of experience contained within our mining and corporate securities team. We provide informed counsel on mining finance, takeover bids, and M&A, allowing our clients to experience first-hand the value we deliver through our strategic guidance and industry-leading reputation. Our goal is to provide our clients sound and practical advice that will successfully advance their resource projects.
