Manitoba ranks 2nd in the world (Fraser Study, 2016) for exploration and mining. Mining is the second-largest industry in Manitoba. In 2014, it directly employed approximately 6,000 people, contributing 6.5% to provincial GDP and 9% of total exports. Although many remote regions of the province still remain unexplored, the Flin Flon-Snow Lake Greenstone Belt located in central Manitoba has been mined for over 100 years and promising ongoing operations in the Snow Lake camp will extend mining operations for decades.   Over a century old, the Flin Flon-Snow Lake mining camps hosts over 35 mines and 90 deposits representing the most prolific greenstone belt in Canada.  

Mining in Manitoba comes with its own business strengths and rewards. The low cost of electrical power, access to high quality skilled labour and excellent infrastructure helps corporations keep the capital and operating expenditures for mine development low and profit margins high.

The financial incentive program offered by the province includes a generous 30% Mineral Exploration Tax Credit, and the government spent more than $200 million on the ongoing rehabilitation of orphaned and abandoned mine sites across the province.


Rockcliff’s Snow Lake Project centered in Snow Lake, Manitoba contains the highest grade unmined copper and zinc deposits and the highest grade former gold producer in the entire greenstone belt.  One company. One camp. Three high grade metals. Rockcliff will continue to explore, discover and expand its present resources to become the next mine finder in this world class mining camp.
