Minerals Developed Department
Current Government is keen to ensure the provision of equitable opportunities and an enabling business environment for both local, international and foreign direct investments. At the heart of such initiatives, the Minerals Development Department (MDD) is playing a commendable role by introducing a simplification of procedures and the introduction of technology by deploying a Mining Cadastre Portal to bring investors one step closer to the mineral resources of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa. The Mining Cadastre Portal provides an e-Government platform for all stakeholders in the mineral sector to engage directly with the MDD. The aim of the Portal is to ensure international standards of transparency with an emphasis on improving the ease of doing business in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa.
Minerals Development Department is committed to introduce international best practices in field of mineral exploration and development of the mineral resources. I am hopeful that by adopting top notch technologies and enabling an investment friendly environment will enhance Investors’ confidence in the mining sector of the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa. I, reiterate that the vibrant and dynamic team of Minerals Development Department will provide best extension services to the mining aspirant at their door steps.
