Investment Attractiveness Index 5 Policy Perception Index 4 Best Practices Mineral Potential Index 12 Geological database 15 Legal system 7 Taxation Regime 5 Uncertaintly Concerning Protected Areas 67 Uncertainty Concerning Environmental Regulations 49 Fraser Institute Annual – Survey of Mining Companies 2016 – FINLAND number one in Europe Canadian provinces performed better than their international counterparts for approving exploratory permits, but a number of states in the U.S. and Australia, as well as Finland and Sweden tended to offer more transparency in the permitting process, and explorers in these jurisdictions had more confidence than those in Canada that they would receive their necessary permits. “Time is money, and if permit approval times are unnecessarily long or lack transparency, confidence plummets, overall costs increase and investors will take their money elsewhere,” said Taylor Jackson, a senior policy analyst with the Fraser Institute and co-author of the two studies with Green.
