The Yukon Chamber of Mines is pleased to announce that our intro to Geology and Prospecting Course is back, and we presently accepting Registrations!
The Intro to Prospecting course is 40 hours of engaging lectures in which you will develop a fundamental knowledge of basic-intermediate geology and the fundamentals of prospecting, from a seasoned Yukon Geologist with over 30 years of prospecting experience. From mineral identification to how to stake a claim, the Basic Prospecting course will teach you what you need to know!
The purpose of the Yukon First Nations Engagement & Consultation Tool Website and Mobile App for the Mineral Exploration Industry (the Guide) is to provide relevant and timely information to mineral explorers and those who work with the industry on engagement and consultation requirements and expectations in Yukon. The Guide can be accessed through hard copy, and a web-based version, which is also available through an app. Although the Guide is primarily focused on information to mineral explorers, and will speak to that industry specifically, it will also be useful for those working with the industry such as investors, academic institutions and government organizations (public and First Nation).
