Saskatchewan Mineral Assessment Database (SMAD)

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.

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. This may include PDF files or other files that 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.
