Doess. They have various guides, and Canadian law always mandates that best practices are used. They provide general guidelines and are technically more oriented towards the use of this type of document. It is a different reality from Chile, because in our country everything points to Decree 248, and there they leave a little more freedom to the guidelines.

The situation is different in Canada, because here in Chile we have very small, medium and very large minesOn the other hand, mining there is homogeneous, and in terms of size it never reaches the dimensions that we have here in our country. There were abandoned remains in specific places, but they did not pose much difficulties to them, this is a different reality, they were located in more remote areas where people do not live ”.
