Invest Yukon: A Rich History & Geological Potential
The Yukon has one of the world’s greatest mineral potential
The Invest Yukon story has a 150+ year history. It stems from the days of the Klondike Gold Rush to the emerging Yukon polymetallic rush! Furthermore, the Yukon represents a large lot of land that is still underdeveloped. “The next major play in the Yukon, probably isn’t even discovered yet,” says Premier, Sandy Silver.
Moreover, Yukon First Nations remain partners in developing Yukon’s mineral sector. This is alongside its leaders in exploration and mining, industry associations and the Government of Yukon. All of these play vital roles in ensuring a valuable, high-tech, rewarding, environmentally safe and socially responsible industry for Yukoners and investors.
In addition, the Yukon is a unique jurisdiction to work in. “We have a supportive government and a stable regulatory regime with a predictable environmental assessment process. We have First Nations with settled land claims and who are used to working with mining,” says President and CEO of Banyan Gold, Tara Christie.
The Yukon also has one of the world’s greatest mineral potential. Over the last decade, there has been a multitude of discoveries that have brought the jurisdiction to the forefront. “Yukoners not only understand mining but they understand the economical benefits of mining,” says John McConnell, Director, President and CEO of Victoria Gold.
