Searching the Saskatchewan Mineral Assessment Database (SMAD)
The Saskatchewan Mineral Assessment Database is an integrated searchable database of non-confidential mineral assessment files submitted in compliance with The Mineral Disposition Regulations, 1986.
The SMAD program allows for the search of Mineral Assessment Files by Text or Map search and the ability to view or download digital copies of the files. Most files will be made available in PDF format, which is viewable with Adobe Reader (a freeware product available online). Other file types such as digital airborne data, may also be present and may require more specialized programs.
As new digital mineral assessment files come off-confidential, they will be added to the online database and will be available to download or view. Our historical data is available for text and map searches, but digital copies of these records for viewing and download will only be available as they are digitally scanned. Check Back Regularly!

Mineral assessment files are identified geographically using the National Topographic System (NTS), followed by a file number. This does not mean, however, that files do not fall into other map sheets.
This page takes a while to load due to the large amounts of data being supported on the page. To turn layers on or off, please go to the Map Options tab once the page has loaded. Assessment files can be separated by type: airborne, ground or underground surveys.
If a file has digital data available, it will be noted within the individual file in tab form “View Data. Digital data is broken into 4 categories: Reports, Digital Submissions, Maps and Figures and Sections, and Miscellaneous. Individual files or All can be selected for viewing or Zipping for download.
If files are zipped for download, a file name will be attached (e.g. MAOC_74H-0008_All_2008-05-13_04-31-49.zip) for download under the ZIP REQUESTS tab.
As this database is always being updated, please be patient and contact the Assessment Files Unit if defective data is discovered. Additional comments and questions should be directed to:
