General Information

Abstract: This volume follows earlier annual Mineral Industry Reports for Yukon published by the Department of Indian Affairs and Northern Development. In addition to the summaries of work by exploration companies found in those earlier publications, this volume contains reports on the geology of mineral deposits and mineral districts under active investigation by geologists of the Department.

This volume further includes a set of maps showing most known mineral occurrences in relation to the mineral and placer claims in good standing with references to descriptions of each occurrence. It is intended to keep these maps up-to-date and to produce them annually as a convenient inventory of occurrences. This volume contains material for two years, effectively bringing this report series up-to-date. The new title for the report was chosen to more accurately reflect its content.
