In an effort to help demonstrate placer mining’s significant economic benefits to the communities we work in, the KPMA engaged the Yukon Bureau of Statistics to do an impartial review of economic business reports during covid years (2020-2021). We are very proud to share this information, with more detail in the report linked above.
In the coming months the Yukon Bureau of Statistics will be conducting a survey with placer miners that will support the results gathered to date.
If you have questions about this work please don’t hesitate to ask the KPMA office.
