This week we present a fascinating panel discussion delving into relations between First Nations, mining companies and the provincial government in northwestern B.C.’s Golden Triangle mining camp.

The panel, which took place at the Canadian Mining Symposium in London in April, was moderated by Northern Miner staff writer Richard Quarisa.

The panelists are Dave Nikolejsin, Deputy Minister, Province of British Columbia; Walter Coles Jr., President and Chief Executive Officer, Skeena Resources Ltd; Chad Norman Day, President, Tahltan Central Government; Corinne McKay, Secretary-Treasurer, Nisga’a Lisims Government; and Charles J. Greig, Vice President Exploration, GT Gold Corp.
