General Information

Abstract: This volume contains overviews on Yukon Mining, Development and Exploration, Placer Mining, Mining Incentives Program, and activities of the Yukon Geological Survey.

Mineral exploration in Yukon increased dramatically in 2004 with estimated total expenditures of $22 million, compared to $13 million spent in 2003. Most was spent on gold exploration, with less spent on base metals and gemstones. The number of new mineral claims staked also rose substantially in 2004, as did the claims in good standing. Current or anticipated mining development projects in Yukon include: the Wolverine (Zn-Cu-Pb-Ag-Au) project, the Carmacks Copper (Cu-Au) project and the Minto (Cu-Au-Ag) and Keno Hill (Ag-Pb) projects.
