This code of practice is to be used in the compilation of a mine plan for each mining operation. The legislative basis for the code is outlined in Appendix 1, and definitions and abbreviations are listed in Appendix 2.

A mine plan consists of any number of sheets showing the entire workings of a mine in plan and section. Each sheet will represent a part or whole of one or more mining horizons or an area of the mining or quarrying operation shown in plan. The mine plan as defined in this code of practice includes any cross section or longitudinal section sheets used.

Other plans may be required as set out in Section 3 of this code of practice.

There is also a need to keep a survey book in the survey office. This book should be in hard copy and should comply with requirements of the Act, s. 89. This does not prevent the same information being stored in electronic form in addition to the hard copy. Results of survey department audits can be noted in this book, as well as records of significant survey information.
