Northwest Territories Geological Survey (NTGS)

Grants to Northwest Territories individuals and companies to increase the sustainability and productivity of the mining industry. Funding is intended to support investigations related to new mineable deposit locations and the continuation of ongoing investigations. Grants may be used to support geological survey projects. The MIP includes two programs: the Prospector Mining Incentive Program and the Corporate Mining Incentive Program.
The Northwest Territories (NWT) Mining Incentive Program (MIP) provides funding to prospectors and exploration companies that propose new exploration projects or are already carrying out NWT mineral exploration work. The MIP is intended to stimulate and sustain mineral exploration activities throughout the NWT and reduce the risk associated with grassroots mineral exploration - exploration that is vital to a healthy, sustained, and productive mining industry.
MIP funded prospectors and corporations may claim expenses related to food/consumables, field gear, wages, fuel, travel, analysis, equipment rental, contracting, and exploration. For corporations, report preparation is also considered an eligible expense.
For more information on eligible expenses, see: https://www.nwtgeoscience.ca/sites/ntgs/files/resources/mip_prospectorguidelines-e_2021_0.pdf#page=9 (for Prospectors)
GrantWatch ID#: 180594
Eligible prospectors may apply for exploration grants of up to $25,000.
Eligible corporate applicants may apply for exploration grants of up to 60% of eligible expenses to a maximum of $240,000. Eligible expenses refer to the part of a program for which the MIP money is designated, not the overall program budget. This means a program would need to demonstrate $400,000 worth of eligible expenses to qualify for a maximum grant of $240,000.
Eligible expenses are those incurred during the period April 1, 2021, to March 31, 2022.
