On July 15, 2009, the BCSC released BC Notice 2009/09 Pre-Filing Review of Mining Technical Disclosure for Short Form Offerings, outlining a new program to allow issuers in the mining sector intending to complete a short form prospectus offering to request a review of their mining technical disclosure prior to filing their preliminary short form prospectus. The purpose of the review is to identify in advance any regulatory concerns with the issuer’s current disclosure that might otherwise be raised in connection with the prospectus review and potentially delay the issuance of the final receipt.
