There are several things that the Yukon has become known for across the globe; vibrant cultural heritage, beautiful mountain ranges, the midnight sun, northern lights and, of course, gold. However, in addition to gold the territory is known to contain deposits of copper, silver, zinc, nickel, cobalt, platinum, palladium and tungsten; metals needed for technology and renewable energy equipment. As the world transitions to a greener economy, these critical mineral resources will continue to attract exploration and investment.
We are proud of our reputation as a top global mining jurisdiction, earned by balancing the economic opportunities that our mineral sector presents with the responsible social and environmental measures necessary to sustain it. The Government of Yukon is committed to growing our industry through strategic investments, strong relations with Yukon First Nations partners, a modern regulatory framework, and supports such as the Yukon Geological Survey and the Yukon Mineral Exploration Program.
Despite its well-known mineral abundance, the territory is still underexplored and full of potential. There has never been a better time to invest in the Yukon.
100,000 fortune-seekers flocked to the Yukon with the goal of striking it rich in the famous Klondike Gold Rush. Today much has changed in the Yukon - including the technology and mining methods but companies are still charging to the Yukon for the modern polymetallic rush.
It could be argued that the Yukon has the world’s greatest mineral potential. In the last decade, there have been a multitude of discoveries that have brought the jurisdiction to the forefront.
Yukon hosts a healthy pipeline of mining projects in multiple commodities. Over the last decade, we have proven that we know how to discover, develop and operate mines in the North. With many world-class deposits being discovered, the Yukon mineral development pipeline creates excellent value for investors.
