General Information

Abstract: This report is a synthesis of the Yukon Geological Survey’s placer fieldwork and captures information collected from approximately 120 site visits conducted each season. Information is supplemented by details from staff at Compliance Monitoring and Inspections and, from conversations throughout the off-season with miners. This edition of the placer industry report is larger than ever, which speaks to the level of activity in the various districts and our commitment to providing an accurate record. In order to provide practical information, we have continued to increase the amount of geological detail in the report. The scope of the report also aims to capture mining activity and equipment utilized at each site. This helps frame the style of mining and gives a general idea about mine layout and processing techniques. The overall aim of the property descriptions is to provide a reference that is both insightful in the short term and informative decades into the future.
