Our Mission

Membership has burgeoned over the years from a dozen founding members in 1943 to more than 400 today. This strong and diverse group includes exploration, mining and service and supply companies, contractors and individuals that have a direct or indirect interest in the mining industry.



Yukon First Nations Engagement and Consultation Guidebook is live Online

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).
