A working placer mine involves everyone from children to grandparents – with some operations spanning three generations and some dating back to the Klondike Gold Rush.
Today, Yukon placer miners lead the world in safe and efficient gold recovery, while making significant contributions to our economy.
Today, we have replaced the pick and shovel of the very first prospectors and have regulations and legislation to ensure environmental stewardship, reclamation and site restoration.
The tenacity that drives us to find placer gold is matched by our passion to find better, more innovative ways to do things.
We are Yukon placer miners – celebrating our past, our present and our future.
